Jowat SE recently announced it has received the Supplier Award 2014 in the category “Newcomer” from Festool GmbH, reportedly for its outstanding performance in supplying adhesive for a newly introduced edgebander. Festool is a leading provider of eccentric sanders, circular saws and routers.

In less than two years, Jowat was reportedly able to convince Festool GmbH that it is not only the preferred provider of hot-melt adhesives, but also a flexible and service-oriented partner during the launch of the new edgebander CONTURO KA 65 to the market.

According to the official award statement, “Jowat accepted the challenges of the CONTURO market launch project and mastered them successfully, supplying the quality and quantity required in time. This contributed a great deal to the successful introduction to the market of the CONTURO edgebander.”

“The award makes us feel proud and is at the same time motivation to further improve our delivery performance and to secure a good cooperation in the future,” said Jochen Wehrstein, responsible project manager and regional manager of sales, Southern Germany, at Jowat SE.
