Reading time ( words)

Koh Young Technology has received a supplier award in the 'purchasing of indirect material' category at Robert Bosch GmbH's recent Global Supplier Award 2017. The award recognizes outstanding performance Koh Young’s employees made in 2015-2016.

This year, Bosch has given awards to 44 suppliers from 11 countries for outstanding performance in the manufacture and supply of products—notably in the areas of quality, costs, innovations, and logistics. Globally, Koh Young is the second SMT-related company to win this kind of award from Bosch among thousands of suppliers.


Dr. Kwangill Koh, CEO of Koh Young Technology, received the award presented by Prof. Dr. Stefan Asenkerschbaumer, deputy chairman of the board of management of Robert Bosch GmbH.

The theme of this year's award ceremony was "Partners in Success" because to Bosch, its suppliers are not only deliverers of parts and component, but also partners in development and innovation who help them stay competitive. At the ceremony, Dr. Stefan Asenkerschbaumer praised all the award-winners. "Our goal is to achieve supply chain excellence. This will work only when all partners are intelligently connected with one another," he says.

"We are incredibly honored to receive this award from Bosch, who has been our trusted partner for more than 10 years. Without help of partners like Bosch, we cannot stay ahead of the technology curve," says Dr. Koh. "I hereby thank Bosch for their continued support and all our employees for making this possible."
