BASF was honored by Tesla Motors with its Supplier Award for excellence in delivery performance. The awards ceremony was held at Tesla’s Fremont, Calif.-based manufacturing and engineering complex on Oct. 15.
"It is an honor to receive this award," said Joe Schmondiuk, vice president of global accounts for BASF Coatings Solutions in North America. "The collaborative relationship we have with Tesla has enabled us to innovate and deliver the performance they need."
Tesla has more than 200 suppliers, 14 of which were selected this year to receive special awards. BASF was recognized for exceeding Tesla’s expectations, in particular by “delivering” on new color introductions, improvements in vehicle painting efficiencies, product quality and customer service.
