M&I wins Siemens Best Supplier for Quality

In June 2010, M&I Materials Ltd was named as ‘Best Supplier for Quality’ at the Siemens Annual Transformer Suppliers Day.


Siemens is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of transformers and every year the company’s Transformer Business Unit awards prizes to its leading suppliers. Prizes are given under the categories of quality, logistics, procurement and technology.

The annual transformer awards aim to strengthen strategic partnerships with key suppliers, in order to keep and expand Siemens’ strong position in the transformer market through collective efforts. The awards also express appreciation for the commitment and support of their suppliers.

Siemens runs a companywide, unified evaluation process aimed at determining supplier status. Assessments for the awards are conducted by eighteen purchasing units, spread all over the world. At each office, assessments are carried out by experts in the respective specialty areas. They judge companies for numerous criteria, divided into the main areas of purchasing, quality, logistics and technology.

At M&I Materials Ltd, we have been supplying Siemens with MIDEL 7131 transformer fluid for many years. We are confident that we provide an excellent environmentally friendly and fire safe product and in addition we use our experience and expertise to deliver a first class service in all areas.

Speaking of the award, Malcolm Worthington, Commercial and Technical Director of M&I Materials Ltd, said: “We are incredibly proud to receive this prestigious award. It is an impressive accolade, in particular given Siemens’ wide range of high quality suppliers.”
