The team at ATD is thrilled to have won JLR's Global Supplier Excellence Award for Unity and Growth. We were one of only 16 award winners drawn out of JLR's 1700 global supplier base so it really is a fantastic achievement.
This is the seventh year JLR has celebrated the outstanding achievements of its global supply chain at their annual Supplier Excellence Awards. The 16 winners were recognised for their extraordinary contribution to JLR’s business, cost transformation and operational delivery over the course of the last year.
Tobias Moch, JLR Chief Procurement Officer, commented: “A great business relationship is crucial to our success, and the relationship with our suppliers is based on performance as well as integrity, honesty and trust. Last night was all about celebrating our very best suppliers and thanking them for their hard work and commitment over the past year.”
“ATD have exemplified the creator’s code principle with a focus in two key areas: Unity and Growth. They treated JLR as a partner, working very closely with engineering, purchasing, launch manufacturing and logistics to resolve issues proactively and quickly. They worked closely with tier 2 suppliers, many of them much larger than ATD. They found common ground to resolve problems and move forward in a collaborative fashion. This led to a successful launch of the Range Rover SV.
Through their long-term partnership, ATD are continuing to support JLR’s growth. They’re investing in new technologies, training and know-how to offer specialist skills in low volume manufacturing. This, in turn, means even more choice for JLR’s most discerning customers.”
Brett Townsend, Managing Director of ATD said; “The team at ATD are immensely honoured and proud to have received this award and it is a reflection of all the hard work at JLR and ATD to engineer and launch the rear console and a number of other interior trim components for the Range Rover SV. It is only by everyone working together towards a common goal that we can truly succeed for our mutual benefit. I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to the combined ATD/JLR team for making this happen.”
