TR honoured with preferred supplier award 31 October 2017

TR Fastenings was recently presented with a “preferred supplier award” from its key global customer Flex (formerly Flextronics) in recognition of a long and successful business relationship. Flex provides innovative design, engineering, manufacturing, real time supply chain insight and logistics services to companies of all sizes and industries. The award recognises TR’s strategic supplier status to Flex, allowing the firm access to new global business opportunities.

Jeremy Scholefield, director of strategic business at TR Fastenings, was invited to the Flex Supplier Summit where he received the award from Tom Linton, Flex chief procurement and supply chain officer. TR was presented with the award together with 160 other key suppliers, carefully selected from the 14,000 companies in its global vendor base. The event was held in the Flex Milpitas facility in Silicon Valley, California to recognise those suppliers which deliver outstanding performance, added value, excellent service, innovation and collaboration.

TR supplies a wide variety of fastenings and Cat “C” components to various Flex sites worldwide, providing strategic sales, plus technical and logistical support into a number of industry sectors such as telecoms, small appliances, energy/power, networking, medical, PCBA, domestic appliances, industrial printers, automotive and marine electronics.

Jeremy Scholefield comments: “It is always an honour to be recognised by our key customers, as the whole TR team prides itself on delivering the highest quality of services and support. Our relationship with Flex goes back over 20 years and we have been able to work with them innovatively and strategically to achieve fantastic results. We look forward to developing the business further in the future”
