Maplan, a reliable partner - Winkelmann Supplier Awardback
Philippe Soulier (owner), together with Wolfgang Meyer (CEO) and Gerald Kemper (sales department manager), travelled to Ahlen on 23 June 2017 to accept this prize from the Winkelmann Group. After an informative tour through the plants (Reflex, Winkelmann MSR Technology, WPC and WTC), which presented a good overview of the wide range of multifaceted competences of the Winkelmann Group, the trophies were handed over by Arno Ruschhaupt (material group manager and deputy head of strategic purchasing) and Besim Jakob (head of strategic purchasing) at Gut Große Kleimann. The criteria for selecting the winners were flexibility and risk management as well as quality and logistics performance. Other aspects such as strategic relevance, long-term partnerships or common development projects were also taken into account in reaching the decision.
As an award winner, we were pleased to receive a very special trophy in terms of design, as the award consists of a shiny polished aluminium base with 3 glass pillars containing representations of the products of the 3 divisions of the Winkelmann Group. Following the prize-giving ceremony, the evening ended with a delicious dinner and stimulating conversations.
We would like to express our thanks for this award and dedicate this success to all our employees, who give their best for our customers, day after day.
