At the GF Machining Solutions Supplier Day 2017 in Losone (CH), GF Machining Solutions awarded 10 of its best suppliers within Europe. Among a range of candidates, FANUC has been selected for its excellent supplier performance.
The Swiss company, GF Machining Solutions (GFMS), provides solutions for innovative milling, EDM, laser texturing, automation and customer service support. By collaborating with FANUC, GFMS can provide more customer-centric solutions that suit a variety of requirements, leading to a long-term and sustainable partnership between the two.
“We see FANUC as a leading company for robotics, therefore we decided to have them as our strategic partner for GF Machining Solutions and our company System 3R,” says Markus Kuhl, Chief Procurement Officer.
Kuhl further explains that with the rise of automation, a multitude of processes are affected and they have already become an integral part of daily life. He states that “…since this trend will continue to penetrate the business world, it is essential that we develop and adapt our procedures accordingly”.
To show the appreciation to those partners who capitalise on this trend, a range of criteria were set against which each supplier was measured. These criteria included e.g. the total cost of ownership approach, customer support, reaction time as well as competitiveness. The winners complying with these key factors have been honoured with awards on September 22, 2017.
FANUC looks forward to a successful and prosperous continuity of the partnership with GFMS!
