Respect and Applause!
The Daimler Supplier Award for the procurement unit of Trucks & Buses is given in three categories: Quality, Innovation and Partnership. The prestigious trophy is only awarded to one enterprise in each category at the awards ceremony.
The winners have already been presented and recognized in previous articles. Today we highlight the nominees that were selected for the category of “Innovation”: the KAMAX Holding GmbH and Co. KG and the Robert Bosch GmbH. As these enterprises more than deserve to be honored as well when looking back at the Daimler Supplier Award. The quotes from Dr. Marcus Schoenenberg, Vice President Global Procurement Trucks & Buses, Daimler Truck AG, speak for themselves.
KAMAX Holding GmbH and Co. KG
KAMAX's ‘Hold and Drive’ feature revolutionized our Daimler Trucks assembly process. Their state-of-the-art bolting system simplified fixing the brackets to the truck frame. The result: a tremendous reduction in parts and production time.
Robert Bosch GmbH
Traffic Sign Recognition, Active Drive Assist, and the latest Active Brake Assist version: Our partner Robert Bosch elevated the performance of the multipurpose camera to a new level to deal with the complex driving dynamics of a truck. They are truly supporting our journey to automated trucking.
The winner for the category of Innovation is MEKRA Lang – a partner who already worked on the further development of conventional outside mirrors at an early stage and brought the technology to the next level.
