AGCO is a global leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of agricultural equipment. Every year AGCO honors its top EME Region suppliers during its annual AGCO EME Supplier Day. In 2019 Okartek won the Supplier of the Year NPI price.
AGCO’s Mauro Garcin, Global Commodity Director Powertrain & Periphery, Global NPI/Adv. Purchasing & Supplier Innovation explained how Okartek has been able to provide “a perfect combination of meeting technical requirements, Right First Time and On Time Delivery all across the development phase and product lifecycle.”
He underlined how Okartek’s products consistently met AGCO’s cost targets and that Orkatek’s Engineering team has been proactively collaborating by providing input and recommendations during all development stages.
Garcin went on to illustrate how Orkatek “have shown customer orientation, discipline and flexibility meeting project schedules and always ensuring full transparency and information sharing. Their excellent collaboration constitutes the premise for significant growth of Okartek business with AGCO.”
The collaboration between AGCO and Okartek have been working together in close collaboration for over 20 years. A better term for collaboration would probably be a very close partnership.
–Part of our job is to look under every rock and turn every stone over to see if there’s anything we could improve or do otherwise. This is how we’ve been able to meet customers’ requirements over and over again, says Okartek’s Sales Director Sami Varjonen.
This feature is very positively valuated by Okartek’s customers across the globe.
–We’ve got a lot going on globally. To mention a few, we deliver to Massey Ferguson in France and to Fendt in Brasil and Germany. The first steps have been taken in China and the United States as well.
