Walter AG named "Preferred Supplier" by Bosch for fourth time

Walter AG has been awarded the "Preferred Supplier" certificate by Robert Bosch GmbH for the fourth time, making it clear that this long-standing partnership is set to continue.

Walter and Bosch have worked in partnership for many years, collaborating closely on a global scale. With sights on digital transformation and Industry 4.0 in particular, partnerships based on tight-knit networks and innovation are proving to be key to business success. Bosch is hugely satisfied with Walter's signature all-in-one solutions, which it tailors to suit its customers' specific requirements. With recent innovations in cutting tool development and the new Technology Center, Walter is now in an even better position to provide Bosch with the support it needs to increase the productivity of its processes, lengthen tool lives, and, as a result, reduce costs. Batu Ulucay from Bosch says: "Walter is a partner we have been able to rely on over the years and they continue to come up with exciting new innovations."

The already effective and close communication has been improved upon further, with contacts at Walter being assigned to just a select few customers. Global Account Manager Helmut Depner is the designated contact at Walter AG for Bosch. "We are on hand to help Bosch with any concerns or issues that may arise and are sure to perform all services required with efficiency. As a full-service partner, we face challenges and respond to our customers' needs on an individually tailored basis. This approach is a reflection of our motto 'Engineering Kompetenz'".

This concept of Engineering Kompetenz has already been brought to life in the new Technology Center, where both partners performed preliminary tests to drive new collaborative developments forward. "We are very proud to have been awarded this certificate. For us, it is a clear indication that we are doing a good job and that our work is being appreciated and considered important by our customer," says Helmut Depner.
