Trelleborg receives partner level supplier for its sealing solutions from AGCO
AGCO, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of agricultural machinery and equipment, with brands such as Challenger, Fendt, GSI, Massey Ferguson and Valtra, has awarded sealing specialist Trelleborg Sealing Solutions partner level supplier status at its first EME Virtual Supplier Event. Trelleborg supplies AGCO with special rotary seals for transmissions and tire pressure control systems, among other things.
Partner status is the highest level a supplier can achieve at AGCO with products from these suppliers used on a priority basis. In addition to quality, the supplier's reliability, service orientation and innovative strength are decisive for the award. Trelleborg Sealing Solutions actively contributes to AGCO’s ability to achieve a unique selling point in the agricultural equipment market through customised sealing solutions and assemblies.
Konstantin Meier-Kulenkampff, Vice President Purchasing & Materials, AGCO International GmbH, says: “We thank Trelleborg Sealing Solutions for its continued commitment to AGCO. Especially in critical times, such as 2018, when demand jumped and capacity was limited, or during the current coronavirus challenge, the difference that partners make to AGCO is clear. I would like to thank you for your outstanding performance and our excellent cooperation over the past years. Together we have brought AGCO to the forefront and together we aim to maintain or even extend our innovative lead.”
Carsten Stehle, CEO of Trelleborg Sealing Solutions in Germany, adds: “We are delighted with the trust AGCO has in us and are proud of this recognition of our work to date. At the same time, we also see it as an obligation to support AGCO in the future to maintain its technical lead. We will remain a reliable partner for AGCO.”
Another business area of Trelleborg Group, Trelleborg Wheel Systems has had AGCO partner level status since 2018. When given the award, the machine manufacturer particularly praised the high level of innovation of Trelleborg's tire business area.
