Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology
Once again, Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology has received DaimlerChrysler’s International Procurement Services (IPS) award. Dr. Heinrich Reidelbach, IPS vice president at DaimlerChrysler, presented the award to Ralf Dieter, executive vice president and general manager of Carl Zeiss Industrielle Meßtechnik GmbH, in a special ceremony held recently in Stuttgart-Untertürkheim, Germany. Carl Zeiss was one of 10 suppliers to receive the award.
The main criteria for the award were a commitment to quality, competitive pricing, technology, and logistics, as well as a long-standing working relationship between DaimlerChrysler and the supplier. This supplier history was recorded in a “balance score card” along with the four IPS criteria to provide a benchmarking matrix. An additional survey was made in DaimlerChrysler’s factories to obtain feedback on their level of satisfaction with different suppliers.
During the award ceremony, Reidelbach explained that Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology was a long-standing premium partner in the field of measuring systems and, in particular, had supported DaimlerChrysler during its starting problems with the E-Class car by providing professional and flexible services.
