In October 2014, gear manufacturing company Santasalo received the award for "Most On-Time Delivery" at the Valmet Supplier Day in Helsinki, Finland.
The Valmet Supplier Day welcomed over 100 attendees from 64 companies worldwide. The aim of the event was to underline the partnerships with suppliers and to provide a more transparent view of the business. The day itself saw senior executives of the Valmet business present information on its current business, the future ahead and the key factors that Valmet expects from their suppliers.
The criteria for the "Most On-Time Delivery" award included a positive trend in on-time delivery with excellent communication, cooperation on all continents and a willingness to develop operations such as product transfer to China manufacturing.
"We at Santasalo have worked hard to achieve this award," said Pasi Jokela, Senior Vice President of Santasalo Finland & Global Capital Sales. "Our dedicated workforce were the biggest contributor to this success with a good understanding of our customer’s needs. We continue to work closely with Valmet and ensure ongoing improvements to meet the customer’s requirements."
