Supplier Award 2017
Prospitalia, Germany’s largest group purchasing organisation for hospitals, has rated about 150 suppliers on the occasion of the Annual Congress in April 2018 and awarded the best in the medical and pharma segments.
In the category “Supplier Rating“, this commendation ranges among the most renowned awards throughout Germany.
After scoring the second place in 2016, we were able to strengthen and intensify our cooperation and services once again. We are very happy to have improved our position which has now been rewarded with the first place for the year 2017.
Andreas Baum, Sarstedt‘s domestic Sales Manager Diagnostics, and Peter Weingärtner, Key Account Manager, accepted the award on behalf of the entire staff of SARSTEDT AG & Co. KG, who made this magnificent result possible.
The scoring was based on the assessment by hospitals supplied by the group purchasing organisation. Therefore, the evaluation constitutes genuine esteem and the highest possible appreciation of the suppliers‘ daily work and services rendered to the customer.
The range of criteria applied in the supplier rating included quality, price, reliability, coorperation, as well as sustainability and innovative ability. While, in 2017, product quality and price were rated at 30% each for the first time, sustainability and innovative ability were added as new categories.
The award obviously constitutes an incentive to defend our top rankings and continue improving our cooperation and quality level in the future.
