Arburg was named Premium Partner of the Year 2018 by the HARTING Technology Group for adherence to deadlines, product quality and reliability of its machines.
HARTING have worked in partnership with Arburg for the last 60 years. At its headquarters in Espelkamp, the corporation honoured a total of nine top suppliers from all important material segments on 28 March 2019, at their 3rd biennial ‘Outstanding Supplier Event.’
The HARTING Technology Group is a worldwide leading provider of industrial connection technology. Currently, there are about 85 Allrounder injection moulding machines in operation at locations around the world.
60 years of trusting cooperation
“We are pleased that HARTING have been using Allrounder injection moulding technology since 1959. And also in regards to philosophy, product quality and reliability, our two family-run companies fit together perfectly“, observed Oliver Giesen, Director Sales Germany for Arburg.
At the biennial event, Maresa Harting-Hertz, Director of Finances and Purchasing at HARTING, began with a presentation speech. She emphasised that her grandfather already purchased the first Arburg machine 60 years ago and that a close partnership has bound both companies since then. The certificate for “Outstanding Supplier 2018” was received by Michael Sperling, Arburg Sales Consultant, together with Jörg Heinzelmann from the Turnkey Department and Michael Pietsch from Arburg Sales Germany. Thorsten Opitz, Global Purchasing at HARTING, emphasised the planning, reliability and trusting cooperation even with quite current projects: “Arburg has supported us enormously with the installation of our new injection moulding production in the U.S.A. And the technical support on site also functions perfectly.”
Both partnering companies are certain that this prosperous relationship will continue for decades to come.
