Bosch Names Wacker "Preferred Supplier"
Wacker Chemie AG, Munich, Germany, has recently been named “Preferred Supplier” in the “elastomers and thermosetting plastics” materials group by Robert Bosch GmbH, Stuttgart, Germany. In Bosch’s annual assessment, Wacker scored top marks in the categories of quality, logistics, innovation and strategic collaboration.
Once a year, Bosch assigns its Preferred Supplier status to the best of its 4,000 suppliers in its subassemblies and materials groups. “Wacker's outstanding achievements in the fields of quality, delivery reliability, innovation and strategic collaboration made it an obvious choice for this award,” said Dr. Norbert Neumann, Bosch’s Senior Vice President of Purchasing and Logistics for Automotive Business Subassemblies and Materials.
Wacker and Bosch have been collaborating closely in automotive electronics and household appliances for over 30 years. The chemical company currently supplies over 100 different silicone products to Bosch, including adhesives, sealants, silicone rubber grades, and specialty silicone gels for potting electronic components.
