Molex has earned recognition as a partner-level supplier for 2016 in the John Deere Achieving Excellence Program. The partner-level status is Deere & Company’s highest supplier rating and is reserved for suppliers who go above and beyond performance standards, reaching world-class levels, and have a measurable effect on customer satisfaction.
The electronic components and solutions provider was selected for the honour in recognition of its dedication to providing products and service of outstanding quality as well as its commitment to continuous improvement. “Molex is proud to be recognised by Deere & Company for our efforts to maintain a successful business relationship and contribute to the superior level of quality of its products and services,” said Bruce Lindahl, worldwide account manager, Molex. “The Achieving Excellence Program provides an outstanding framework for teamwork and communication as we pursue a shared vision and commitment to continuous improvement.”
Suppliers who participate in the Achieving Excellence Program are evaluated annually in several key performance categories, including quality, cost management, delivery, technical support and wavelength, which is a measure of a supplier’s initiative to support the business relationship. John Deere Supply Management created the program in 1991 to provide a supplier evaluation and feedback process that promotes continuous improvement.
