Kronos has secured the top spot as Veka’s 2021 Supplier of the Year. The selection process to become a Veka supplier is rigorous, as carefully chosen partners undergo continuous, stringent monitoring to ensure that standards are upheld.
Suppliers must meet or exceed expectations each month in order to remain on Veka’s approved supplier list. This data also enables the hard work of top suppliers to be recognised and celebrated. Kronos achieved the maximum possible points in 2021.
Nicola Woods, Veka’s procurement and mixing plant manager, said: “Key suppliers are provided with a monthly ‘vendor rating report’ which outlines how we have judged their performance. They are graded on quantitative data such as the number of non-conformances and ‘on time in full’ deliveries but also on qualitative data such as customer service, flexibility and timely responses to queries.”
Sven Hartmann, Kronos’ key account manager, said: “We are honoured and feel grateful for this award. Furthermore, we are pleased to know Veka is on our side as a long-term and loyal partner, and that the business will continue focusing on maintaining the well-known service and further grow the partnership. Veka were, are and will remain an important part of our business and strategic partner in the future.”
