The EMS Group, a leader in high performance polymers and specialty chemicals, with its companies combined in the EMS-Chemie Holding, has been presented with the Global Supplier Excellence Award 2018 by Itron, USA. EMS got appreciated for extraordinary quality of its services and products, high innovation capability, and permanent value-added engineering.
Itron, customer and strategical development partner of EMS since 1997, is a global technology corporation, and is leader in the field of energy and water resource management.
High-performance polymers from EMS have long held a leading position in the field of sanitary fittings, replacing brass for use in contact with hot and drinking water. Using EMS’ materials, manufacturers of sanitary fittings can achieve cost savings of up to 60 per cent, the company said.
EMS has been expecting a progressively slowing of the global economy since the beginning of 2018, approaching it accordingly with new products, innovative applications, and global efficiency programmes. The award in the field of sanitary applications confirms the success of this approach. Furthermore, 470 efficiency measures are being implemented globally within the EMS Group, which will achieve their full effectivity during 2019.
EMS is confident with regard to development of its own business. The successful strategy of growth with speciality products in the area of high performance polymers will be continued as well as innovative products and solutions being rapidly introduced into the markets. For the whole year 2018, EMS continues to expect net sales and net operating income (EBIT) slightly above the previous year and at new record levels. (GK)
