"Supplier of the Year 2020" – Viscom Receives Prestigious Award from Continental AG

Oct 14, 2021

Viscom AG has won the "Supplier of the Year 2020" award from Continental. The evaluation criteria are based on both the performance of the past years and the future potential of a supplier. The award ceremony at the highest management level on September 9 was purely a virtual affair due to the current pandemic situation.

In comparison to almost 900 evaluated suppliers from all production areas, Viscom was able to secure the top position in the "Production Equipment" category. Besides the aspect of technology, decisive factors for the final evaluation included product quality, commitment, costs and purchasing conditions.

"We're really honored by the award. It clearly confirms the sucess of our focus on innovative developments and our customer care concept. As a manufacturer of inspection systems for electronics production, we see ourselves as a global partner accompanying Continental to ensure the highest production quality," emphasized Carsten Salewski, Executive Board Member for Sales, Marketing and International Business at Viscom AG. The renowned "Supplier of the Year" award underscores Viscom's innovative strength and future potential.

Dr. Nicolas Thiemeyer, Head of Key Account Management at Viscom AG, added: "Being honored as one of the top suppliers of 2020 is an outstanding testimonial for us and at the same time an incentive to continue shaping technological change alongside Continental as a reliable partner."

The "Supplier of the Year" awards recognize suppliers who have made an exceptional contribution to customer satisfaction from various aspects. Every year, the technology company can build on a strong, global network of strategic partners, the best of whom receive a very special award and recognition in this way.

For Viscom, winning this award is not just confirmation of many years of successful cooperation – it is also tremendous motivation to continue to impress all around with powerful and highly accurate inspection technologies in the future.
