Schreiner Group honours Zeller+Gmelin as “Performer of the Year”
Within its ‘Preferred Supplier’ programme, Schreiner Group, specialist for innovative functional labels with headquarters in Oberschleißheim, Germany, has awarded Zeller+Gmelin GmbH & Co. KG as ‘Performer of the Year 2018’. The ink manufacturer from Eislingen, Germany, receives this special prize, which the Schreiner Group has been awarding for four years now, to smaller but especially efficient suppliers, for the remarkable quality development in 2018.
During the ceremony at the beginning of April, Manfred Laschinger, head of purchasing at Schreiner Group, said the reasons for the award are in particular the transparent communication, as well as the high quality of the products and the low reclamation quota. “In the past years there has been not a single reclamation,” Laschinger said. “And, in particular during the big colour conversion last year, Zeller+Gmelin has taken care of our concerns in an outstanding manner.” A functioning and frictionless customer-supplier relationship is an important condition to fulfil the growing demands of the end customers. Thereby, a long-term availability of the used materials and raw material components is of central significance, as well the open and early communication of possible changes. During the handover of the certificate, it was agreed to further intensify cooperation on this level.
For Robert Paukner, sales manager for the region GER, AT, CH at Zeller+Gmelin, the award by an internationally renowned customer such as the Schreiner Group is an important confirmation of the fundamental company philosophy and, above all, a high appreciation for the commitment of all employees in the Printing Inks Division. At Schreiner Group, the radiation-curable inks and coatings from Zeller+Gmelin are applied, for example, in the production of numerous labels for the pharmaceutical and automotive industry.
