Bowers Group is delighted to announce that it has won the coveted Best Supplier Partnership award at the Manufacturing Technologies Association’s (MTA’s) 2014 Annual Dinner & Awards held on 6th February.

Bowers’ fruitful relationship with Swiss company, Sylvac SA exactly corresponds to the award’s criteria: celebrating successful relationships between customers and suppliers, at any level of the supply chain, where innovation, sustainability, value and efficiency have led to productive collaborations.

Having enjoyed a 40-year working relationship, together the companies were responsible for developing and bringing to market the world’s first digital 3 point bore gauging system. Through continuing joint cooperation, many further successful, innovative measuring instruments have been introduced. Now, 2014 will witness the launch of their latest joint development; the next generation of Bowers’ world-leading bore gauging range.

Commenting on the flourishing association, Bowers Group MD Geoff Jackson said. “We are extremely proud to have won this award. Our relationship with Sylvac SA is based on several factors; amongst them are open and transparent communication, mutual cooperation and understanding, and a desire to promote best practice.  Without doubt, our enduring relationship has been a major factor in both Bowers and Sylvac SA now being recognised as world leaders in their respective fields, across a diverse range of industry sectors.”
