Munich, Germany – Wacker has been named Bosch’s ‘Preferred Supplier’ in the elastomers and thermosetting plastics materials group.
Once a year, Bosch assigns its ‘Preferred Supplier’ status to the “best” of its 4,000 suppliers in its subassemblies and materials groups.
“Wacker’s outstanding achievements in the fields of quality, delivery reliability, innovation and strategic collaboration made it an obvious choice for this award,” said Dr Norbert Neumann, Bosch’s senior vice president of purchasing and logistics for automotive business subassemblies and materials. “What particularly impressed us was Wacker’s extremely constructive and forward-looking approach.”
Wacker and Bosch have been collaborating closely in automotive electronics and household appliances for over 30 years. The chemical company currently supplies over 100 different silicone products to Bosch, including adhesives, sealants, silicone rubber grades, and specialty silicone gels for potting electronic components.
