Prague - Agricultural equipment manufacturer AGCO has awarded its highest supplier rating to Mitas for deliveries of farm tyres from January to December 2011.
The Mitas-produced brand Continental is a standard fitment in four out of six AGCO's model series, for example Fendt 924-930 Vario, Mitas said in a 12 Jan news release. AGCO evaluates its suppliers' quality, logistics, customer service and protection of the environment, in all of which Mitas received the highest grade. Mitas has received the overall A award annually since acquiring production of Continental farm tyres in 2004.
â€œMitas' core business is agricultural and industrial tyres,â€ said Andrew Mabin, Mitas' sales and marketing director. â€œOriginal equipment manufacturers appreciate close attention to detail and reliability.â€ Mitas sales to AGCO increased in excess of 25 percent in 2011 compared with 2010.
â€œIn 2011, Mitas achieved sales exceeding all its historic business results,â€ Mabin added. Mitas said its total sales in 2011 are likely to surpass Euro 400 million. Audited business performance indicators will be made publicly available later in 2012.
