Jundiaí, Brazil / Balzers, Liechtenstein, 27 November 2020 – Oerlikon Balzers, a leading global supplier of surface solutions for the metal and plastics processing industry, has received the Bosch “Best Supplier of Surface Treatments” award for 2019. The company was recognised for providing excellent quality with its high-end coatings applied to precision components for the world’s leading automotive supplier.

Oerlikon Balzers recognised by Bosch as Best Supplier of Surface Treatments

Robert Bosch Ltda. presented the award to Oerlikon Balzers Brazil in recognition of its outstanding commitment as the best supplier of high-quality surface treatments to the automotive industry. The coatings applied to pistons in diesel injection pumps for HGV engines minimise wear between pistons and pump bodies, which increases their service life, improves their reliability and reduces both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The customer centre in São José dos Pinhais coats a huge number of components which are used in Bosch pumps.

Luciano M. Silva, Oerlikon Balzers Director of Sales & Operations Brazil and Argentina, said: “We are very pleased that Bosch has recognised us as the best supplier with a certificate for our high-quality surface treatments. Congratulations to all our employees, partners and suppliers for the part they have played in Oerlikon Balzers’ success, including everyone at our customer centre in São José dos Pinhais, without whose hard work and dedication every day Bosch’s high standards could not be met. We set great store by giving our customers top-quality products and services, providing a safe working environment for our staff and protecting our planet. This award is further proof of our never-ending commitment to high-quality surface solutions.”
