thyssenkrupp Autômata wins two Embraer Supplier of the Year Awards

The 12th of December 2012 – will be an easy to remember day for all employees at thyssenkrupp Autômata in Brazil. But not because of the date: It was the day that Embraer, the world’s 3rd largest aircraft manufacturer, awarded them the title of Best Supplier of 2012, not in one but two categories: “Sheet metal forming and sub-assemblies” and “Best supplier of subcontract for the Botucatú site”. What makes this success even sweeter: With a total of 73 suppliers, Embraer honors seven different award categories every year. Of these, only three are dedicated to metallic parts manufacturing. thyssenkrupp Autômata, part of thyssenkrupp Aerospace, won two of them. Amongst other criteria, the awards were earned by achieving 98,5% On Time Deliveries, less than 500 parts per million (ppm) in discrepancies, as well as thyssenkrupp Autômata being acknowledged as a low risk supplier.
