It is thought that the company was acknowledged primarily due to its supply chain optimisation and reduction in cost, as well as in addition to its excellent customer service.

“This award acknowledges Smurfit Kappa for going above and beyond in quick delivery response times to support high schedule fluctuations,” said Bartosz Thomas, from Signify’s Worldwide Strategic Commodity Procurement Team.

“In addition, they provided unlimited support for our IWD & Magic Hat workshops, resulting in and contributing to cost savings, transportation and operational improvements.”

The honour, which was delivered in Mexico, was decided by a global panel of Signify Account Managers and Procurement Directors.

“Smurfit Kappa’s Tijuana Plant in Mexico provides innovative, and sustainable packaging for a wide range of Signify’s lighting products including ballasts, LED lights and LED lamps,” the press release reads.
