NORMA Group honors Aperam as the best supplier in the Americas in 2015
“Aperam is known for its excellent service and high level of customer orientation,” said Tim Jones, president of NORMA Americas. “For example, Aperam provided us with detailed and continuous technical advice during recent restructuring in the area of steel processing at our plant in Auburn Hills.” Aperam USA achieved better than average results in the areas of competitiveness, quality standards, economic stability and the technical knowledge of its employees, in particular, in the supplier evaluation for calendar year 2015.
“On behalf of our employees, I would like to thank NORMA Group for presenting us with the award,” commented Peter Staruch, Sales Manager at Aperam Stainless Service & Solutions USA. “Our goal is to continually get better and to always offer our customers the best possible service.”
