Lantech wins 3M 2020 supplier of the year award.
Lantech, a stretch wrapper and case handling equipment manufacturer, was honoured with 2020 3M Supplier of the Year Award to recognise its contribution to improving 3M’s competitiveness.
This year, 3M recognized 20 suppliers supporting the U.S. and Canada, among thousands in its global supply base, to provide products and services for world-class performance. These suppliers were identified and rated based on actions taken to improve 3M’s competitiveness and overall supplier performance. A virtual awards ceremony was held on February 4th, 2021.
“3M has been a long time valuable partner and customer to Lantech,” said Jim Lancaster, CEO of Lantech. “It is our honour to have been called on in the last year when an urgent need to ramp up production of PPE required immediate delivery of automation equipment. In addition to the ongoing work we do to ensure the safety to ship packaging of 3M products, Lantech associates stepped up to build custom machinery for 3M in less than a week.”
“Supplier collaboration is critical to supply chain success,” said Debora Fronczak, vice president, 3M Strategic Sourcing. “We are fortunate to work with great suppliers who are committed to fostering a relationship with 3M. These collaborative relationships help us to serve our customers with innovative and valuable solutions. We must recognize our most outstanding suppliers, and that’s what this award is all about.”
