Pirelli names specialty oil company Nynas Best Supplier 2011
World leading tyre manufacturer Pirelli has named Nynas Best Supplier 2011, together with seven other leading suppliers. Marco Tronchetti Provera, President of Pirelli, announced the winners at an Awards ceremony at Pirelli’s headquarters in Milan, Italy. An important reason for winning the award was Nynas’ quick transfer away from aromatic oils, in light of the 2010 EU ban on highly aromatic content in tyres. Additionally, Nynas and Pirelli have recently signed a global supply agreement which means that Nynas will cater Pirelli’s demand for specialty tyre oils over the next five years.
The Best Supplier Award was presented for the first time this year and will from now on be presented annually. The Awards committee evaluated the suppliers based on the following criteria: quality, innovation, speed, price, sustainability, logistic network and service level.
- To receive this award from a world leading tyre producer such as Pirelli is a clear indication that our efforts within the industry have been successful. By presenting this award to Nynas, Pirelli recognises our leading position in the specialty oils industry, says Staffan Lennström, CEO of Nynas.
Nynas has recently signed a five year supply agreement with Pirelli and will continue to develop the relationship in order to secure the continuous development of Pirelli’s tyres and the company’s market leading position. As a supplier to Pirelli, high quality, sustainable solutions and flexible logistical solutions all over the world are keys to success. The recent supply agreement can be seen as a confirmation of Nynas’ high quality products as well as its flexible and customer-oriented organisation.
