PMS wins AVL Supplier Award 2018

AVL has presented PMS with the AVL Supplier Award 2018 in the top “Special Excellence” category.

Successful Lavanttal business PMS is one of the leading providers of electrical and automation engineering and helps industry customers meet specific requirements and deliver projects both in Austria and abroad.

Every year, AVL presents this award to suppliers who demonstrate exceptionally high levels of commitment. PMS beat more than 400 suppliers in the “Special Excellence” category, as AVL recognised the consistently high quality standards and customer focus that PMS has shown since it was founded. Managing Directors Alfred Krobath and Franz Grünwald attended the “AVL Supplier Day 2019” on 29 October 2019 in Graz and were presented with the award by Helmut List, CEO of AVL.

Christian Majcan, Senior Strategic Buyer at AVL, emphasised in his speech that PMS was being recognised for its high levels of quality and innovation. AVL began the evaluation process for series manufacture of its E-Storage systems in 2012, and it decided to become partners with PMS in 2014 owing to the size of the company, its innovation and its financial strength. Production of prototypes for AVL began at the PMS site in St. Stefan in 2015, and series production soon followed. 

PMS had the speed, flexibility and customer focus to meet all the conditions and requirements stipulated by AVL from the moment the partnership began. Majcan is particularly proud to have taken this decision, which has very quickly proved to be a masterstroke.

“Winning this award has only been made possible by the hard work of all staff involved in the AVL project”, said Krobath and Grünwald. The two PMS Managing Directors thanked all staff, whose dedication, commitment and willingness to develop their skills and help the company grow, and to give their best every day, have made this such a successful project.
