EJOT honours suppliers
"Strong partnerships are better than protectionism"
"Strong partnerships are better than protectionism." This was the clear message of the 6th EJOT Suppliers' Day, which took place in the event hall in Biedenkopf. To the applause of numerous guests from Germany and abroad, the companies Hieber & Maier GmbH from Bretzfeld-Schwabbach, WHW Walter Hillebrand GmbH & Co. KG from Wickede, the hardening shop NABI GmbH from Remscheid and Alex Screw Industrial Co Ltd. from Taiwan were honoured.
Strong partnerships are the better answer to the challenges of globalisation and digitisation. "This is why we strive for strategic partnerships in many areas that are characterised by trust, quality, service and innovation," explained Wolfgang Bach, CFO of the EJOT Group. The importance of these partnerships will continue to grow in the future, especially as the digital revolution has only just begun. Hieber & Maier (HIMA) has distinguished itself for many years through a consistently high level of quality, very good service and very high delivery reliability. The company from Bretzfeld-Schwabbach in northern Baden-Württemberg supplies EJOT with rolling dies for the thread production of fastening elements.
EJOT has a long-time, intensive partnership with WHV Hillebrand, in which many new innovations have been developed. During this time, a highly professional cooperation has developed at all levels. This applies both to the coating of screws and fastening elements with zinc flakes and to the chemical deflashing of metal parts.
The NABI hardening shop was honoured in the "Newcomer of the Year" category. For two years the company from Remscheid has had an important function in the area of heat treatment of EJOT industrial products.
Alex Screw Industrial Co Ltd. comes from Taiwan and has been an extremely reliable partner of the EJOT Group for almost 20 years with its production of screws for the construction industry.
Before the award ceremony, the guests received interesting information about the current development of the EJOT Group. The managing partner of the EJOT Group, Christian Kocherscheidt, presented products, application engineering and technologies which have been the reason for the continuing good growth of EJOT.
