LONDON DT Electronics (Coventry, England) has landed its fifth 'Supplier of the Year' award from broadcast hardware manufacturer, Quantel. DT Electronics also won it in 1992, 1993, 1997 and 1998.
The award is in recognition of the highest supplier performance with respect to on-time delivery, accuracy of delivered goods and accuracy of supply chain administration and paperwork.
Simon Carter, purchasing manager at Quantel, said, “Distributors play a vital role in minimising our transaction costs and keeping us competitive. Once again, in 2004, DT Electronics performed amazingly in this respect, achieving a 99.90% score. For Quantel, purchasing is not a simple question of buying at the lowest price; we value enormously the efforts of our suppliers and DT Electronics has demonstrated a real understanding of how they can help us succeed in an increasingly competitive environment.”
