The awards recognise the ‘excellent performance and strong commitment of a few selected suppliers’. In total, only nine suppliers worldwide receive the prestigious award.

In particular, Hélène Paul, Chief Procurement Officer, commented on the Rubix team’s “excellent performance and contribution to Michelin’s three pillar strategy development”, which covers people, profit and performance. This was supported by Rubix’s commitment to environmental social and governance (ESG) issues, risk management and innovation.

Presenting the award, Dominique Cordaillat, Michelin’s Director of Industrial Purchasing, highlighted the strength of the Rubix relationship, strong presence within the plants and value creation business model. In particular, he recognised the value of Rubix’s services in  helping to meet their sustainability objectives, and in particular the CO2 reduction targets.
