Last year a total of 500 suppliers were entered as contestants to win the award that was established in 2011 by AL-KO. Nine of these suppliers were awarded prizes on 26 February 2013.
voestalpine was the only steel supplier to be awarded in the category of reliability.
voestalpine has been a supplier to AL-KO since the 1990s. There has not been a single quality claim for the last three years. This is a special achievement when you take into consideration that half of all the steel delivered to AL-KO comes from voestalpine.
