TR Fastenings Goes for the Double with Second ‘Supplier of the Year’ Award

TR Fastenings is stacking up the silverware having won yet another award for supplier excellence.

The global fastenings supplier, which has its headquarters in Uckfield, was awarded the Lear Corporation’s ‘Supplier of the Year Award’ which was presented to 10 companies for outstanding performance during 2011. TR Fastenings was presented with the award at seating and electrical power management systems manufacturer Lear’s headquarters in Southfield, Michigan in the United States on March 16, 2012.
 
The award comes hot on the heels of another accolade for TR. Last month, the fastenings firm was awarded the Philips Hamilton Supplier of the Year award for outstanding service.
 
The 10 winning firms honoured by the Lear awards were selected from more than 2,000 companies worldwide. TR Fastenings was recognised for consistently meeting the Lear Corporation's demands in customer service, quality and delivery and increasingly participating in Lear's standardisation process for fasteners. TR Fastenings has been named as the preferred global supplier of fasteners to the Lear Corporation, securing new Programs to be supplied by the TR Group with new business opportunities from the US manufacturer over the next five years.
 
Matt Simoncini, Lear's president and chief executive officer said:  "Lear is proud to recognise our best suppliers.  While we value the contributions of all of our suppliers, inclusion on this select list signifies truly superior overall performance. Our 'Supplier of the Year' winners have shown an unwavering commitment to excellence in quality, innovation, cost efficiency and a willingness to go above and beyond in assisting Lear in serving our customers in today's highly competitive global market."
