The awards ceremony was held recently at the supplier conference in Erlangen, Germany where the top 75 suppliers of Siemens Healthineers worldwide were invited to attend. There were five suppliers recognized, including an overall supplier of the year. Kimball Electronics was recognized with the 2017 Supplier Award for Competitiveness and Collaboration. This distinction is bestowed to a supplier of Siemens Healthineers that has demonstrated excellence in collaboration and competitiveness aiding the Siemens Healthineers team.
Presenting the award, David Mount, Chief Procurement Officer, Point of Care, Siemens Healthineers explained, “Kimball put forth a lot of extra effort to help with a Siemens device that had gone on back-order during a re-design; things such as training additional resources, scheduling additional shifts, and collaborating around the clock. This enabled Siemens to alleviate the backlog within a three-month period, produce additional new supply of the new design, and mitigate and rebuild safety stock.”
Headquartered in Jasper, Indiana, Kimball Electronics operates nine manufacturing facilities in six countries and was selected based on its “extra effort and performance excellence,” “outstanding communication” and “successful collaboration with change and transition requests and backlog issues from the Siemens team.”
“On behalf of our more than 4,800 employees worldwide, I would like to say thank you to Siemens for recognizing Kimball Electronics with this very special award,” says Don Charron, Kimball Electronics Chairman and CEO. “This is another great story and a great example of our commitment to service excellence!”
