John Deere awards highest supplier-classification status to STAR

John Deere, an industry leading provider of agricultural, construction, forestry and turf equipment and of precision farming solutions maintains the John Deere Achieving Excellence process to regularly assess its suppliers and continuously improve co-operation. “Partner”, the highest of the four possible classifications in the AE process, is awarded only to John Deere’s best-of-best suppliers. As John Deere puts it, Partner status is “our classification for those suppliers who distinguish themselves by repeatedly accepting co-operation in the light of a challenge”.

STAR AG in Ramsen (Switzerland) has been awarded Partner status for the 2015 business year. This is John Deere’s acknowledgment of STAR’s outstanding translation-service quality and product delivery capability, and its commitment to continuous improvement in business processes.

Since 2009, STAR AG with its global network of in-house specialists has been John Deere’s dependable PLM partner for global information management with sales and aftersales documentation, market-appropriate translation and localization and automated multi-channel publishing and feedback processes.

“We view this prestigious classification as a symbol for the shared success of many years of co-operation to date, and we also consider it an incentive to continue striving as partners to meet the challenges of the future”, asserts Josef Zibung, owner and CEO of STAR AG.
