Taken into account each supplier quarterly scores each supplier is ranked on their performance in a number of areas. Areas included are quality, on time deliveries, complaints, cost, and innovation and admin/invoicing.
The awards which are ranked Bronze, Silver and Gold are based on these scores. There is also an additional award for the supplier of the year which is presented to the top supplier who has gone the extra mile in terms of the TEG drivers of Quality, Cost and Delivery.

It’s an incredible achievement from all the guys involved and I am immensely proud of each and every one of them for the effort they have put in, not just this year but the previous years as well.”
