voestalpine is Samsung Best Partner 2017

voestalpine supplies Samsung with high-quality, pre-painted steel plates for household appliances at the production site in Poland. After just a year of working together, voestalpine received an award as the absolute No. 1 for “Best Cooperation in 2016” among all suppliers for Samsung Poland.

Samsung sets extremely high quality and service standards for its suppliers. Thanks to its convincing quality and service, voestalpine was able to win Samsung as a customer. The voestalpine Steel Service Center (SSC) Polska supplies Samsung with high-quality colofer® blanks for Samsung household appliances at the Wronki production site (Samsung Electronics Poland Manufacturing Sp. z o.o.).

The colofer® coils are delivered from Linz to Tychy, where the final production phase is performed and the parts are delivered to Samsung Poland. This requires optimized logistics and flexibility across site boundaries.
