Wacker recently announced that it has received the Supplier Distinction Award from Avery Dennison in recognition of high reliability, excellent customer service, and product quality. Wacker, which supplies Avery Dennison with silicone-based release agents for release papers, was previously recognized for its excellent service in 2019.
At a recent award ceremony, Avery Dennison honored a total of 24 service providers and raw material suppliers, including companies that helped prevent production downtime by continuing deliveries during winter storm Uri early last year in the U.S. According to Wacker, special emphasis was placed on its excellent cooperation and reliability.
“WACKER met all of the key metrics to qualify and was recognized for outstanding service and support that went above and beyond our expectations,” said Kamran Kian, Avery Dennison’s vice president of Global Operations Supply Chain Label and Graphic Materials.
According to Tom Johnson, Avery Dennison’s senior director for Global Procurement Chemicals & Adhesives, Wacker’s reliability, business stability, and innovation led to increased collaboration globally. “Even with surging costs and global logistical constraints, WACKER continued to provide our business with impeccable service, delivery and product quality, while supporting our volume growth throughout the year while others could not,” he said.
“The last two years were challenging for our industry, which is why we are honored to receive this recognition for our service to support Avery’s success in 2021,” said Ian Moore, Wacker’s vice president of Consumer Silicones. He added that Avery’s Supplier Distinction Award is not only “a recognition for those who work with you every day, but also for the many hundreds of WACKER employees around the world and our partners who made this possible.”
