Voith Paper Fabric & Roll Systems has won Mondi’s Machine Clothing Supplier Award in a competitive process overseen by Beatrix Praeceptor, Procurement Director Mondi Europe & International, and Peter Putz, Operational Director Packaging Paper, Europe & International.

This award was established in 2013 to showcase the best performing business partner in the machine clothing sector, which plays a critical role in the paper production process. “Our 13 mills rely on these tailor-made engineered fabrics to produce the high quality paper-based products that our customers expect,” explains Beatrix Praeceptor. Mondi set up an internal panel of procurement and paper production experts to evaluate all current suppliers and the winner was announced today during an event at the Mondi Europe & International office in Vienna, Austria.  

Voith Paper Fabric & Roll Systems is a family-run multinational corporation in the mechanical engineering sector with worldwide operations. “We are extremely happy and proud to get this award. This will motivate us even more to take our products and services to new levels, which allow us to support Mondi in reaching together our common goals,’ says Thomas Jäger, SVP Voith Paper FRS.

Mondi strives to have a close collaborative partnership with its suppliers and this award showcases the importance it places on high-quality performance and service.
