Sartorius receives award for outstanding performance in its production chain

Each of the competing production chains was assessed by performance indicators that were benchmarked, such as customer satisfaction, quality or innovation. These, in turn, involved several assessment criteria, including cost management, resource efficiency and customer focus.

“Our thanks go out to the entire team that faced up to the challenges posed by the competition and to all staff members who have shaped the transformative activities over the past years and helped to implement the changes and improvements. With our drive to provide customers with the best possible service, I see the Global Excellence in Operation Award as confirmation that we are on the right track, and as an incentive to go forward,” said Matthias Wessel, Head of Operations of the Sartorius Lab Products & Services Division.

Around 450 employees manufacture laboratory instruments, such as balances, ultrapure water systems and moisture analysers in the building covering some 25,000 m2. As high-precision weighing instruments are also calibrated inside, the building is protected from temperature fluctuations and by a vibration-decoupled foundation.
