Supplier of the Year


Rewarding distinguished suppliers was started at Black Bruin 25 years ago, the purpose being to acknowledge and confirm the importance of these suppliers to Black Bruin and especially to salute suppliers serving as an example to others in quality or other respects.

On Thursday 3 November, the Supplier of the Year Award for 2022 was presented to machining workshop Sorvaamo Seppo Oy. The jury explained its choice as follows: ”This year, we have paid particular attention to the supplier’s capability to respond to Black Bruin’s growth strategy, to being ready, willing and able to meet increased demand. This is where short delivery times and flexibility are key.”

The jury moreover applauded machining workshop’s ability to react to urgent needs at short notice: “This supplier is also capable of maintaining consistently high quality alongside growth.”

According to the jury, the supplier has moreover provided development ideas for more cost-efficient and faster production methods. What more proof could you want?

Sorvaamo Seppo Oy was awarded at Supplier Days 2022 in Jyväskylä. Managing Director Sami Anttila received the prize from Pasi Kuljula.
