Remy International Brazil recently won the MAN Latin America Supply Award for commercial excellence in electrical at the awards banquet in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Remy Automotive Brazil supplies MAN Latin America with a number of starters, alternators and magnetic switches that are used in VW branded trucks, buses and special vehicles produced in Brazil.
“Remy has always been driven by a passion for excellence,” says Bernardo Milioni Garcia, OE sales and applications senior manager for Brazil and South America. “Receiving the MAN Latin America Supply Award is an example of that passionate drive and the result of delivering world-class design, manufacturing and service to our customers.”
This award distinguishes Remy for its commercial contribution throughout 2009. This is the third time Remy has received an award at the MAN Latin America awards ceremonies. In 2005 and 2006, Remy won the Supply Award in the Competence on Product Development category.
Remy has had a strong relationship with MAN Latin America and has enjoyed shared growth over the years. Remy says that as of 2010, sales in the heavy-duty market in South America have expanded at a compound annual growth rate of more than 40 percent over the past three years by taking advantage of strong growth in Brazil and important partnerships established with key customers in this region.
