Every year the MEYER Group presents the "Partner of the Year" award to selected suppliers. This award is based on the supplier rating that was introduced in 2005 within the framework of the shipyard's supplier management. Since then these ratings have become an ongoing process.
In the supplier rating basically the suppliers' performance is evaluated in terms of price, reliability and quality per ship. Another key component is the evaluation of the three shipyards in Papenburg, Turku and Rostock by its suppliers. All efforts are geared to a permanent improvement of the shipyards' cooperation with its suppliers.
