Dusseldorf, July 11, 2013 – Renesas Electronics, a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced that it has been named as Supplier of the Year by Grundfos, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of pumps and electric motors. Chosen from over 2000 suppliers, Renesas Electronics achieved an almost faultless performance by being honoured for its excellence in six categories: Quality, Productivity, Technology, Delivery and Flexibility, Transportation and Logistics, and B2B collaboration. Renesas Electronics Corporation supplies Grundfos with microcontrollers for its intelligent pumps and motors. Grundfos sees Renesas as a strategic business partner that plays an active role in product development.



  These convincing results make Renesas Electronics one of Grundfos' most important suppliers. Grundfos executives presented the award to Renesas at a ceremony at Grundfos’ headquarters in Bjerringbro, Denmark, on July 3rd 2013.

  “We’ve been working with Renesas for over 20 years – our close cooperation extends beyond the confines of a conventional supplier/customer relationship,” noted Klavs Hornum, Group Vice President at Grundfos. “This is a partnership covering strategic issues such as technology platforms and procurement – not just products – and both parties learn and benefit from it.”

  “We’re very proud to have won this award from Grundfos, especially seeing that we excelled within no less than six different categories,” said Rainer Bechem, Head of Unit at Renesas Electronics Europe. “It’s based on a company-wide effort, including faultless communications and engineering collaboration by Renesas Electronics Europe and Renesas Electronics Corporation.”
