Lesjöfors China awarded ElringKlinger’s Global Supplier of the Year

Lesjöfors China is granted a prestigious award from their customer ElringKlinger. As Global Supplier of the Year, Lesjöfors’ scoring is the highest any supplier has ever received. A close cooperation within our Group has paved the path to this award.

One of the Lesjöfors companies in Germany has been a supplier to ElringKlinger since 2002. When joining the Lesjöfors group in 2013, they introduced Lesjöfors China to ElringKlinger since the company at the time was searching for a local component supplier in China. The introduction led to a close business relationship and Lesjöfors supply globally to several of ElringKlinger’s locations.

Top scoring

ElringKlinger measures the suppliers in four different aspects: quality, price, innovation and cooperation. Lesjöfors China’s scoring of 98 is the highest scoring any supplier has ever achieved. In the second half of 2022, it was close to perfection in all areas with a score of 99,7 of maximum 100.
