Aleris has been recognized as a Bombardier Diamond Supplier for its outstanding performance as a supplier of aluminium aerospace products.
The award was presented during the Bombardier Supplier Symposium on 7 February in Montreal, Canada. The Bombardier Diamond Supplier programme recognizes the outstanding performance of its suppliers across the organization. It aims to build a long-term relationship with its suppliers, recognizing and rewarding suppliers’ achievements and excellence, growing and innovating and providing the suppliers with a clear and transparent definition of excellence and expectations.
“This award is a recognition for the daily efforts of our whole team. We are constantly working to improve our products and service. It is this sense of customer focus and excellence that enables us to meet Bombardier's targets,” says Ingo Kröpfl, vice-president Global Aerospace at Aleris.
Aleris supplies plates, sheets and cut shapes made of certified aluminium alloys, which are then used to make components for all Bombardier aerospace programmes. The award also recognizes the successful ramp-up of Aleris’ manufacturing plant in Zhenjiang, China, which supports operational reliability for Bombardier in the Asia-Pacific region. The company’s production facilities in Koblenz, Germany, also produces aerospace products.
