OBERKOCHEN, GERMANY-Carl Zeiss Industrielle Messtechnik GmbH has won its third consecutive Bosch Supplier Award. The Oberkochen-based manufacturer of industrial metrology equipment has been honored again for its performance in quality, costs and delivery reliability during the past two years. The award also recognizes the company’s determination to constantly enhance its products and services as well as its technology potential.

Werner Gerstner, vice president for sales in Germany and South America at Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology, and Richard Gärtner, vice president and general manager of the services division, received the award during a ceremony in Stuttgart’s Staatsgalerie. Gerstner emphasizes the significance of the award: “The fact that we have once again been honored as one of Bosch’s global suppliers testifies to the continuity of our work and to the commitment of our staff in the sales and service areas. Needless to say, leading edge measuring technology is the focus of our relationship with Bosch. At the same time, however, we do everything in our power to keep our customers completely satisfied. One aspect is not possible without the other if we are to safeguard our position in metrology in the long term.”
