CPM received “Supplier of the Year” award
November 2013 – The Fiat Chrysler Group presented the Italian Dürr company CPM S.p.A. with the "Capital Equipment Supplier of the Year 2013" award. With this award, the carmaker recognized the excellent quality of CPM's work. Special mention was made of the fact that "by developing the flex decking system, CPM and Fiat Chrysler jointly created an innovative solution for the marriage of body and powertrain".
The award is the result of a long lasting business relationship. The close cooperation led to the joint development of the flex decking system, an intelligent solution for the marriage of body and powertrain. Flex decking lines are used, for example, at the Italian plants in Pomigliano and Melfi, at Kragujevac in Serbia, as well as at Changsha (China), and at the Chrysler plant in Toledo (US). Plans for the next project at the Brazilian plant in Pernambuco are already underway.
The award was presented to CPM at the "Supplier Qualitas 2013" gala held in Turin by the Fiat Chrysler Group on November 13, 2013. For more than 40 years, the Italian Dürr company has been the leading supplier for the Fiat Group in the areas of conveyor systems and final assembly.
