EPCOS was the first-time winner of the "Supplier of the Year" award in the category "Logistics" presented by Siemens Motion Control Systems. Outstanding achievements in delivery capacity and reliability clinched the award for EPCOS, which fought off competition from more than 250 rivals.

Motion Control Systems is part of the Drive Technologies unit in Siemens' Industry sector. Headquartered in Erlangen, the division leads the world in business with drive systems for machine tools, production machinery and large crane installations. EPCOS supplies this customer mostly with EMC filters and large aluminum electrolytic capacitors that are made in Szombathely/ Hungary. Forward-looking expansion of EPCOS' production capacity in Szombathely in recent years prepared the ground for such outstanding delivery performance.

"For EPCOS, this award confirms the quality of our close collaboration over many decades," said Ralph Bronold, who was presented with the prize. "But it also spurs us on to strive for excellence every day as we serve this important customer."
