Tuttlingen Chiron Werke GmbH & Co. KG has been honored with the Bosch Global Supplier Award from Robert Bosch GmbH. Chiron received it in the category purchasing of indirect material and is the only manufacturer of machining centers among the prize winners. With this award, Bosch recognizes outstanding performance in the manufacture and supply of products and services – notably in the areas of quality, costs, innovation, and logistics. „We are very proud of this award. It shows that we offer high quality and future oriented solutions – in partnership with our customers “, states Dr. Markus Flik, CEO of the Chiron Group.

In all, Bosch has given awards to 44 suppliers from eleven countries. The theme of this year’s award ceremony in Stuttgart was Partners in success. “Bosch’s success is based in no small part on competitiveness, innovative strength, and agility – qualities we can achieve only with fruitful international partnerships,” explains Dr. Karl Nowak, president of the Bosch corporate sector for purchasing and logistics. Chiron has met the requirements of Bosch and, therefore, received in 2017 not only the Global Supplier Award for the first time, but also the Bosch Preferred Supplier Award for the fourth time. In front of some 100 representatives of the supply industry, Dr. Markus Flik and Stefan Birzle, Head of Global Account Management Automotive Chiron Werke, received the coveted award.

Chiron supported Bosch with highly productive machining solutions and has long been more than a mere deliverer of machining centers. “Chiron is a partner in development and innovation that supports Bosch to remain competitive“, says Dr. Flik. Competences in the development, manufacturing and implementation of complex production systems as well as the continuous development of digital solutions are critical success factors.
