AOC LLC (Collierville, Tenn., USA) reports that its subsidiary AOC Mexicana has been named the first annual Supplier of the Year by the Mexico Division of Bulk Molding Compounds Inc. (BMCI, West Chicago, Ill.), the primary producer of thermoset compounds in Mexico. The award is the premier recognition for supply chain partners who demonstrate distinguished performance in quality, customer support and technical expertise.
Chad Nunnery, president of BMCI Mexico, says AOC has both global relationships and a local presence that allows BMCI to maintain a more consistent product internationally. “The BMCI Mexico team is very appreciative of the effort and performance by the AOC operation and staff,” says Nunnery. “We selected AOC Mexicana as our first Supplier of the Year not only based on their excellent service and product, but also their partnering efforts to support the growth of thermoset composites in Mexico.” The AOC team has achieved 4 years of outstanding service to the company without any late deliveries or major quality issues.
AOC Mexicana operates a major resin manufacturing facility in Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl inside the Mexico City Metropolitan Area. The central location helps to facilitate BMCI Mexico’s localized, world-class supply base as well as maintain reduced freight and importation costs over other providers. BMCI’s primary markets are automotive and electrical industries producing applications such as headlamps, valve covers and circuit breaker switch gears.
Our industry-leading franchise is positioned to create customer value and ensure their continued success,” says Brian Parker, AOC's vice president, global business. "This award recognizes AOC’s quality of service, its cutting-edge technology and the synergy of both companies.” The Supplier of the Year award winner is chosen by BMCI Mexico’s team of quality, manufacturing and logistics executives.
