The suppliers were carefully selected for the awards on the basis of their innovation, sustainability and quality of service. The focus was on selecting those suppliers who contributed to making the Pirelli supply chain even more sustainable and thus ramped up qualitative excellence, with the outcome being more high value Pirelli products.
The awards for the winners were presented by Chief Purchasing Officer Matteo Battaini and Chief Sustainability and Risk Governance Officer Filippo Bettini at a gala event held at Pirelli’s headquarters in Milan, Italy.
The awards were given to nine suppliers in the field of raw materials, services and machinery.
