A DS Smith Packaging business, Packaging Services Management (PSM), has been honoured by Ford Motor Company as one of its Top Performing Suppliers for Excellent Service and Outstanding Support in 2011.
The packaging company was one of only two UK businesses to be awarded at the Ford World Excellence Awards in the United States.
Tony Johnson, General Manager of PSM, was in the USA to receive one of the 36 World Excellence Awards. He said: “PSM is a small team but this award shows that we can deliver service at a level that Global companies recognise. Our relationship with Ford continues to deliver excellent service and savings to its business, and has actually been the launch pad for our business offering in Europe.”
Acting as the first tier supplier, PSM provides a single point of contact for any business requiring packaging products, services and supplies (including contracted and mandated suppliers) with easy access to DS Smith Packaging’s products and services, allowing customers to focus on their core business.
Tony Brown, Group Vice-President, Ford Global Purchasing, thanked each supplier for its dedication and hard work throughout 2011.
