Mars Drinks has rewarded RPC Tedeco-Gizeh Port Talbot with a Gold Supplier Award for the third year in a row in recognition of the site’s excellent supply record.
The award was given for RPC’s consistent product quality and outstanding delivery scheduling.
Commercial Manager for Mars Drinks, Julian Barker said: “Mars Drinks’ lean manufacturing practices place a high level of trust with suppliers and RPC Tedeco-Gizeh has consistently demonstrated flawless quality and on time delivery whilst also being able to accommodate last minute schedule changes.”
He added: “Technical collaboration continues on a variety of innovations that will benefit both parties in the future. RPC Tedeco-Gizeh is an integral part of the success of Mars Drinks and its commitment to operational excellence is valued and appreciated by everyone here.”
RPC Tedeco-Gizeh has advised Mars Drinks on a number of major projects since their working relationship began. Mars Drinks recently used RPC’s technical expertise during the design and launch of a new range of larger vending cups, which was carried out in record time.
RPC Tedeco-Gizeh general manager David Lowe said: “We have supplied Mars Drinks for many years and we recognise that quality service is essential to maintain this strong relationship.
“To win the Golden Supplier Award for the first time in 2010 was an amazing achievement but to follow that up in 2011 and again in 2012 is a credit to the skills and efforts of the remarkable team here at Kenfig, and testament to our dedication in ensuring that all customers receive an excellent service on every level.”
