Each year Grundfos awards a supplier for having lived up to the company’s expectations of the importance of good relationship with suppliers to ensure safe and stable supplies of high-quality materials. The receiver of Grundfos Supplier Award 2008, London-based British Morgan Advanced Ceramics Ltd, has exceeded expectations and contributed to bringing Grundfos into World Class. For more than 40 years Morgan has been a stable supplier of components to Grundfos. Co-operation started with ceramic shafts and bearings and today Morgan supplies a large amount of other components as well. The award was presented on 17 June at Grundfos Group HQ in Bjerringbro, Denmark. Morgan and Grundfos share a mutual understanding of the business and both agree on contributing to each other’s development. Grundfos greatly appreciates that Morgan has very high standards regarding quality and security of supply. Morgan has in great excellence improved the quality level and 2008 was an extraordinary positive year regarding quality and supply. The ceramic components are recyclable and present no threat towards the environment, which is an important part of the mutual understanding. The components with practically no wear are manufactured in a production department exclusively for components to Grundfos. Morgan is an innovative company and, together with Grundfos, they developed a pilot valve which is now used at Grundfos in France.
