(2017/04/27) Bad Neustadt a. d. Saale/Zweibrücken/Germany. Preh is pleased to announce that it has been named a John Deere Partner-Level Supplier for the 2016 Achieving Excellence Program. The award represents John Deere’s highest supplier rating. Suppliers who participate in the Achieving Excellence program are evaluated annually in several key performance categories, including quality, cost management, delivery, technical support and wavelength, which is a measure of responsiveness.
The Award was handed over by Pierre J. Guyot (Vice President, Global Supply Management and Logistics Deere and Company) and Rich Czarnecki (Vice President, Global Supply Management at John Deere Agricultural and Turf Division) to Preh managers Charlie Cai (Managing Director Purchasing/Supply Chain Manage-ment/Commercial Vehicles) and Jürgen Jungert (Head of Depart-ment Sales and Product Management Commercial Vehicles) at the John Deere Supplier Conference 2017 in Zweibrücken/Germany.

Charlie Cai, Preh managing director responsible for the division Commercial Vehicles HMI said: “It is a great honor for us to be named a John Deere Partner-Level Supplier. This confirms that we are defi-nitely on the right track with our smart and reliable HMI solutions for rough use conditions.”
