In an event held on November 28 in São Paulo, Whirlpool, a leader in the Brazilian appliance market with the brands Brastemp, Consul and Kitchen Aid, held an awards ceremony in recognition of the companies that had excellent performance in their supplier management criteria which assess financial status, social and environmental compliance, risk to quality, logistic system and dependency ratio. ARIM Components, already awarded the first edition of the Whirlpool Supplier Award in 2013, once again took the important title in the category of Strategic Products (subcategory Heating Elements and Gas) back to the factory. “Whirlpool’s criteria are very strict and require a performance of more than 90% in the various issues that assess the risks that we offer to our client’s operations. We have achieved 95% and this excellent result, the result of the work of the entire team, will be greatly celebrated by all of us “, explains Felipe Guilhen, Quality Manager of ARIM. “In both editions of this award, ARIM has deserved this high performance index, guaranteeing recognition for pure merit. I want to congratulate all the employees of the company who, directly or indirectly, contributed to bring this trophy home, “concludes Paulo Morete, General Director of the company.
