A Trelleborg Supplier Day was held at the Group’s headquarters in Trelleborg, Sweden, on May 22, 2017, and gathered over 60 participants from major Group-wide suppliers.
An introduction was made by the host of the day, Jonas Olsson, VP Group Purchasing, and Charlotta Grähs, Senior VP General Counsel and Secretary.
Besides the friendly atmosphere and networking, participants shared an exciting and clear overview of Trelleborg Group – Yesterday, today and tomorrow made by President and CEO Peter Nilsson, followed by presentations by Ulf Berghult, CFO, Patrik Romberg, Senior VP Corporate Communications, Jonas Olsson and Rosman Jahja, VP Corporate Responsibility. Trelleborg’s decentralized organization and governance was explained, and the many ongoing initiatives within the digital field were highlighted. The following Q&A session showed the genuine interest of the suppliers present to understand Trelleborg strategy and to contribute to a common goal of accelerated performance.
“Trelleborg is a global and more complex company than many people know, and we have been through important changes in 2016,” says CEO Peter Nilsson. “Therefore it is vital for us to explain our strategy to one of our most important stakeholder groups, our suppliers.”
“As part of our Excellence programs we are running supplier days centrally and locally throughout Trelleborg. We do this to secure that our supplier base understands where we are heading, how suppliers can support us and what we are demanding from them in terms of quality, on-time-delivery, costs and corporate responsibility,” concludes Jonas Olsson.
