Semiconductor test equipment supplier Advantest has received a Bosch Group Global Supplier Award for 2019, earning a global ranking among Bosch’s best providers of technology and services. Advantest received the award in recognition of its timely delivery of semiconductor test solutions used to qualify Bosch’s product portfolio of MEMs and automotive consumer devices.
This year, Bosch recognised 47 suppliers among its network of approximately 43,000 suppliers in 15 countries. This year’s award ceremony, inspired by the theme of “Transforming Together. Staying Ahead.” was held near Blaichach, Germany.
Every two years, Bosch honours its most outstanding suppliers around the world with its Global Supplier Award. A panel of judges selects the award-winners in the categories of indirect materials, raw materials, and components by business sector. In a special category, suppliers are able to submit to the judges any products, processes and technologies that have enhanced Bosch’s innovation potential.
“With the Bosch Global Supplier Award, we pay tribute to our best suppliers around the world,” said Andreas Reutter, head of supply chain management at Robert Bosch. “The award-winners have achieved outstanding levels of excellence, and work with us in an exceptional spirit of partnership. From technological expertise to logistical quality and entrepreneurial potential, our award-winners have it all.”
“Working with Bosch and ensuring their overall satisfaction is the ultimate goal of Advantest,” said Hans-Juergen Wagner, managing director and CEO of Advantest Europe. “Because we place extremely high value on customer service and support, we are delighted that the processes we have implemented have earned us the distinction of being awarded Bosch’s Global Supplier Award. This recognition underscores our commitment to partnering with them in their success now and into the future.”
