Murata's Continental Supplier of the Year & Supplier Quality awards 2016


Hoofddorp, Netherlands: Murata Electronics has received the "Supplier of the Year 2016" award from Continental. These awards have been around since 2008 and are now highly sought after as they are renowned in the industry for being the standard for excellence. At the 2017 Supplier Day in Regensburg, the prize winners from the 2016 production year were honored.

The awards were presented by Dr. Elmar Degenhart, Chairman of the Executive Board of Continental AG, and Günter Fella, Head of Purchasing at Continental Automotive. The fifteen product categories in which the Supplier of the Year 2016 awards were presented can be broken down into the following six fields: Electronics, Electro-Mechanics, Mechanics & Raw Material, Plastics & Rubber and Investment & Engineering Services, in addition to division-specific categories. Murata greatly accepted the award in the Electronics category.

"Both the developments within the automobile industry, the increasingly complex global platform concepts and our customers' growing expectations in terms of quality all present new challenges for the entire supply chain," said Degenhart in his speech during the award ceremony.

In addition to the suppliers of the year, Continental Automotive has presented a special Quality Award to Murata in recognition of their exceptional performance in improving quality.
