Mann & Hummel receives Volvo Group Purchasing Supplier Award

At a ceremony held at this year’s IAA Commercial Vehicles trade fair in Hanover, Mann & Hummel was presented with the annual Volvo Group Purchasing Supplier Award in the field of Aftermarket Excellence.

The judges were impressed by the filtration expert’s consistently competitive offerings on a variety of global markets and along the entire product lifecycle. A global market presence and technological expertise represent the main sources of added value for Mann & Hummel’s customers.


A panel of Volvo purchasing managers compared some 2,700 of its standard production suppliers before selecting two winners within the Aftermarket Excellence category. The Awards were presented in six categories, with Mann & Hummel singled out for Aftermarket Excellence for high quality and delivery standards and achieving continuously productivity gains. The award was handed over by Eric Chapoulaud, Vice President Aftermarket Volvo Group Purchasing.

“As far as Mann & Hummel is concerned, being a filtration market leader means more than just glossy brochures and catchy slogans,” said Sigfrid Steiner, manager of the Automotive Aftermarket business unit. “Instead, our aim is always to provide our customers with the highest quality products and outstanding service, with a view to building a long-term relationship based on trust. This award is proof that we are on the right track.“
