Outstanding Performance

James Forrester, Procurement Manager of Yanmar Europe, comments:

2022 was another difficult year for procurement, with strong pressures on the cost coming from materials, energy and the labour market, as well as chronic shortages of electronic components. Despite this challenging backdrop, Veratron managed to maintain excellent delivery performance. Moreover, the support for new Yanmar development projects has been outstanding.

Customer Recognition

Veratron is proud to be this year’s winner. Martin Ebneter, CTO and President, says:

For us, being the best in class for marine electronics is not only an achievement, but it is the result of our team’s hard work.

Alessandro Rizzo, Head of Sales, says:

Yanmar and Veratron share common goals: customer satisfaction and uncompromising quality. I am confident that together we can achieve ambitious results.

Annual supplier evaluation and feedback is an essential part of maintaining and improving Yanmar’s high standards. Yanmar Europe works with more than 200 external vendors of parts and components. Each spring, Yanmar evaluates the Top 25 suppliers by order value for the previous calendar year.

The final score is based on criteria for quality, cost, delivery, technical expertise and general management topics. The vendor with the highest score is awarded “Supplier of the Year” and invited to receive their trophy during a short ceremony at Yanmar Europe headquarters in Almere, Netherlands.
