The Partner-level status is Deere & Company’s highest supplier rating. Hall of Fame status is given after a supplier attains a Partner-level rating for five consecutive years.
“Bellota Agrisolutions is honored to receive such prestigious award from John Deere” said Eduardo Urrestarazu, VP Marketing and Commercial Manager at Bellota Agrisolutions. “We are grateful to have a customer that values the continuous improvement and effort for offering top quality products as much as they do. At Bellota Agrisolutions we are consistently focused on implementing improvement measures to reach the highest level of service for our customers and we are proud to be a John Deere supplier”.
Bellota Agrisolutions from its manufacturing plants in Milan (IL, US), Legazpi (Spain) and Indaial (Brazil) supplies coulters, openers, assemblies, concave discs and tines to John Deere manufacturing plants in Des Moines (IW), Seeding (IL), Valley City (ND), John Deere Mexico and John Deere Brazil.
Suppliers who participate in the Achieving Excellence program are evaluated annually in several key performance categories, including quality, cost management, delivery and technical support, which is a measure of responsiveness.
John Deere Supply Management created the program in 1991 to provide a supplier evaluation and feedback process that promotes continuous improvement.
