Dow Corning, a global leader in silicones, silicon-based technology and innovation and a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW), today announced that it received the prestigious Global Supplier Award from The Bosch Group, a leading worldwide supplier of technology and engineering services. Issued every two years, Bosch’s coveted awards recognize companies that have demonstrated outstanding performance in the manufacture and supply of products or services to Bosch – especially in terms of quality, pricing, reliability, technology, and continuous improvement. Bosch recognized 44 companies from 11 countries this year.

“We are delighted and very proud that Bosch has recognized Dow Corning’s commitment to its success with this prestigious award,” said Jörg Kersten, Dow Corning’s global key customer manager for The Bosch Group. “Like Bosch, we believe that long-term partnerships and close collaboration are the key to mutual success. It continues to be our privilege to work alongside their industry-leading team of innovators, and support their mission to be a top global engineer of automotive and electronic components.”

Karl Nowak, president of Corporate Sector Purchasing and Logistics at Bosch, informed Dow Corning via a letter that it had received the honor. Nowak’s letter read, in part: “Success in an increasingly connected and digitalized world requires strong and reliable partnerships. Your company’s outstanding performance and exemplary teamwork in 2015-16 contributed to Bosch’s success. To demonstrate our appreciation to you and your employees, we would like to honor you with the Bosch Global Supplier Award."


Bosch officially bestowed its awards at a gala award ceremony held on July 12 in Stuttgart, Germany hosted by Robert Bosch GmbH’s executives and board members. Patrick McLeod, global business director, Dow Performance Silicones, and Wiltrud Treffenfeldt, chief technology officer, EMEAI at Dow, attended to accept the award on behalf of Dow Corning.
