REYHER named best supplier 14 February 2020

The medical and safety technology provider Drägerwerk AG (Dräger) has named REYHER as best supplier in the ‘mechanics’ category in 2018/19. With this award Dräger acknowledged REYHER for its continuous optimisation over the years in comprehensive C-part management and international Kanban supplies.

The accolade, awarded every two years, was presented during the ‘Suppliers’ Day’ event in the Drägerwerk future factory in Lübeck. Awarded in five different categories, the prize was handed out by Stefan Dräger, chairman of the Dräger executive board, Kim Sascha Steingrube, head of quality management, and Steffen Michalzik, president global purchasing/supplier quality assurance.

REYHER successfully prevailed against 1,200 other nominated suppliers.

Matthias Kelp, vice-president sales, Udo Strothmann, key account manager, and Thomas Haug, general manager RAP, accepted the Dräger supplier award on behalf of REYHER. “We are very pleased to receive this award. At the same time, we are just a little proud to have won this prize against so many nominated suppliers,” said Klaus-Dieter Schmidt, joint CEO at F.REYHER Nchfg GmbH & Co KG.

Dräger and REYHER can look back on decades of good cooperation. Since the early 1990s the Lübeck company has been a REYHER Kanban customer.
