Together with seven other international companies, including industry giants such as GlaxoSmithKline, Intel, Rio Tinto and Tata Steel, Bühler was shortlisted in the “Procurement and Cross Functional Collaboration” category. This nomination was based on the successful implementation of its Total Synchro Concept and Motor Selection Tool, initiatives that are making a vital contribution to streamlining manufacturing and global supply chain flexibility.
At the ceremony, John Walker, Bühler’s Chief Procurement Officer said: “The team can be proud that Bühler figured so prominently in this event, because the annual Procurement Leaders Awards are recognized as crowning achievements for the function worldwide. It’s important to emphasize the cross-functional aspect of this category, because this is not just a procurement award. It’s really an engineering, product development, manufacturing, logistics and project management award, and it reflects how well our teams work together to serve our customers. That makes winning this award all the more exciting and inspiring.”
