Ensinger has named Victrex winner of its High Performance Supplier/Partner of the Year award for 2013.
Headquartered in Germany, Ensinger obtains its supply of PEEK (polyetheretherketone) polymer from Victrex. VICTREX PEEK polymer is incorporated in its TECAPEEK series of stock shapes designed for use in challenging and extreme environments.
According to Ensinger, its High Performance Supplier/Partner of the Year award is closely analysed four critical criteria: on-time delivery, product quality, customer service, and technical service/sales support.
"We would like to congratulate Victrex on winning the Supplier/Partner award for 2013," said Chris Ranallo, General Manager of Ensinger, in Washington, Pennsylvania, US. “At Ensinger, we strive to deliver innovative solutions for our customers. Victrex is a world leader in high performance engineering polymers, and has been a true partner in our drive to customer satisfaction. Above all, we appreciate the security of supply maintained meticulously by Victrex. It is central to our success in meeting our time-to-market objectives."
Ensinger places equal importance on the quality of VICTREX PEEK as well as on its proven track record of delivering performance benefits in the most demanding environments.
Ensinger states VICTREX PEEK offers reliability even in harsh operating conditions with its exceptional high temperature, corrosion, and abrasion resistance. The lightweight thermoplastic is used as a viable alternative to metal due to its ability to provide strength at lighter weights – a key initiative for commercial aircraft and automotive vehicle manufacturers in search of improving fuel efficiency and lowering operational costs. It is also more than capable of meeting the strict demands of the medical industry and the increasingly complex and challenging operational environments in the oil and gas industry.
"Every application requiring engineering polymers necessitates a different approach from concept to implementation. This award from Ensinger, which we are highly honoured to receive, is a gratifying confirmation of the way in which we have consistently worked to be a solutions partner, not just another plastics company," commented Wolfgang Reimer, Global Strategic Accounts Manager at Victrex. “Our customers can rely on our expertise and knowledge to turn their challenges into benefits – and know that we then offer on-time delivery and consistent product quality deemed vital to our mutual success.”
The award was presented by Chris Ranallo, General Manager at Ensinger, to Victrex representative Rich Leibfried, Technical Sales & Marketing Manager, at Ensinger’s annual sales meeting in the presence of its U.S. commercial and business development teams.
