Engine power & propulsion manufacturers Tognum announce awards to their most outstanding suppliers

This is the seventh year that Tognum has given accolades for outstanding achievements, but the first year in which there have been five categories.

The awards were presented by Dr. Ulrich Dohle, Tognum executive board member responsible for Technology & Operations, and Erik Manning, head of purchasing at Tognum, accompanied by the relevant departmental managers. “The Supplier Award is a mark of outstanding achievement and quality,” Dohle emphasized. “The winners have proven themselves to be exceptionally reliable business partners who have set standards and thereby made an important contribution to the long-term success of our business.”



For the second year in succession, the award for best supplier of finished parts was won by Maschinenfabrik Spaichingen from Baden-Württemberg (Germany). They have been supplying the Tognum Group with control elements for MTU Series 4000 engines for many years.

The top-rated supplier of unfinished parts was Giesserei Heunisch based in Bad Windsheim in Central Franconia (Germany). They produce complex castings such as gear casings for the Tognum Group.

Another award winner from Central Franconia was the best in the new onsite energy category, Hering of Gunzenhausen, who develops and manufactures exhaust heat exchangers for gensets carrying the Tognum-brand MTU Onsite Energy.

The number-one component supplier – the second of the new award categories – was Zeulenroda Präzision Maschinenbau from Thuringia (Germany). They produce high-precision components for L’Orange, the Tognum Group’s fuel injection specialist.

The most-improved supplier of the year award was presented to Prestolight Electric, a manufacturer of starters and alternators. Within the space of a year, the supplier based in Middlesex in the UK improved its ratings in all criteria and so made the biggest step forward of all suppliers.
