BSH organized a "Suppliers' Day" on October 6, 2014 at the Starnberg Vierjahreszeiten Hotel in Munich, Germany, and presented awards to its successful suppliers. The auditing and assessing of its suppliers by the Brand as well as specifying the best of them every two years is an excellent example to the fact that BSH shares its accomplishments with its suppliers.
Only 29 companies out of the Brand's 2400 suppliers across the world were invited as award nominees to this biennial event on basis of their performance in the 2012-2013 period as well as the strategic scoring BSH run on them. The firms invited to the event from Turkey were Kabel A.Ş., ORS, Teleset, Arma Filtre, Korel, and Uzay Kalıp.
Introductory presentations of suppliers in each group were made during the ceremony; afterwards, only the best company in its particular group was awarded the prize and the firms receiving awards in 5 distinct categories were announced. The awards were grouped as electric parts suppliers; metal parts suppliers; plastic parts suppliers; module and other parts suppliers; the most-developed suppliers; and the best global suppliers...
Our member company Kabel A.Ş. received the Best Supplier award in Electric Parts category, and another member Ortadoğu Rulman A.Ş. received the Best Supplier award among all BSH's global suppliers. We congratulate them on their success.
BSH shared with these select suppliers recent developments in the market as well as the Brand's medium-term plans. The increase in market share BSH achieved in the stagnant European market, and the Company's efforts to develop regional/local approaches received particular emphasis during the event. At the beginning and end of the award ceremony, BSH's finance and purchasing departments described current market conditions and the Brand's 10-year targets. The industry's way forward and the changes that will be encountered in the coming term were also discussed.
The event was finalized with a boat dinner and performances given on the Starnberg lake.
