CHAMPFROMIER, FRANCE, May 23 (Korea Bizwire) – On Tuesday 14th May 2019, AKWEL received a “Silver Award” from Jaguar Land Rover during its annual Supplier Excellence Awards ceremony held in Coventry (UK). Only 15 suppliers out of 3500 around the world were recognised for their extraordinary contribution to Jaguar Land Rover’s business, cost transformation and operational delivery over the course of the last year. Ian Harnett, Jaguar Land Rover Director of Global Purchasing, commented: “This year, we have faced unprecedented challenges across our business. Despite this, we have continued to produce more desirable, more refined and better quality cars than ever before. We could not achieve this without the suppliers that underpin our business. Our annual Supplier Excellence Awards are an opportunity for us to celebrate the suppliers and the people who collectively have worked hard and diligently these past 12 months.”
The same week, AKWEL was named a GM Supplier of the Year by General Motors during its 27th annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony held Wednesday, May 15 in Detroit (USA).
