YFAI Leadership Team commented, “Congratulations on achieving a Yanfeng Supplier Award.

Each year, Yanfeng pauses to recognise our supply base and their significant accomplishments over the prior year. Yanfeng understands and appreciates that our supply partners are an integral part of our success. As we reflect on 2021, we realise that there have been unprecedented challenges for both YF and our supply partners. However, in spite of these challenges, you have stepped up to the challenge and performed at a very high level. Thank you for that extra effort to execute in this challenging environment and your continued efforts to perform accordingly in the future.

On behalf of Yanfeng’s Global Leadership and the NA Procurement Leadership Team we extend a recognition award to you for your performance in 2021. Yanfeng greatly values you as a current and future supply partner. Congratulations and thank you!”


The TR Houston Team and I are delighted to receive this award. Brad Allen and Jose Vera, with the Internal Support Team, are very dedicated in their support of Yanfeng and it is great to see that this has been acknowledged, as we value this relationship.
