MUNICH—Molnlycke Health Care honored Wacker Chemie A.G. with a 2017 supplier award in the Long-Term Relationship category at a ceremony in Gothenburg. Wacker has been supplying silicones to Molnlycke, a Swedish wound-dressing manufacturer, since the late 1990s.
"As a winner of the Supplier of the Year Award, Wacker is an example of how a good relationship has turned into a strategic partnership. The company has supplied us with high-grade products for years and its quality and customer focus have always been exceptional," Eric De Kesel, executive vice president of operations at Molnlycke, said in a statement.
Molnlycke is one of Wacker's key customers in the health care sector, and has involved Wacker in the development of new products, said Christian Gimber, head of Wacker's engineering silicones business unit.
"This award is an incentive for us to further expand our cooperation with Molnlycke in the coming years," he said.
Headquartered in Gotheburg, Sweden, Molnlycke employs 7,500 people and operates 17 production sites and 35 sales offices globally.
