Xerox elects Schneider as first "Global certified supplier"
Schneider will be awarded with the distinction of first "global certified supplier" by Xerox.
As worldwide specialized manufacturer of products and services for electrical distribution, industrial control and automation, with sales of 56 billion francs in 1994, Schneider thus acquires preferential supplier status for Xerox, Leader in the Global Document Management market (sales of 90 billion FF in 1994).
Groupe Schneider has been a Xerox supplier since 1963. Today, Xerox has introduced new standards which cover almost the entire Schneider product range, including the Square D, Telemecanique, Merlin Gerin and AEG?Schneider Automation brands.
The performance of Schneider products and services throughout the world has led Xerox to extend its "certified supplier" label, which exists since 1986, to the rest of the world for the first time. This distinction is awarded after an in?depth survey conducted by Xerox quality professionals. This audit verifies that the supplier operates in an environment of Total Quality Management, providing faultless products and services, permanent customer focus on behalf of Management, personnel implication in the quest for excellence and the use of quality tools, etc.
For Schneider, this award is new proof of the success of its quality policy aiming at total customer satisfaction. Xerox is one of the 25 major companies for which Schneider has assigned a Global Account Manager.
The award ceremony will take place on September 12, 1995 at the Schneider headquarters in Boulogne, in the presence of Mr. Didier Pineau?Valencienne, Chairman and CEO of Groupe Schneider, Mr. Franz Scherer, Chairman and CEO of Rank Xerox The Document Company SA France and Mr. Shrawan Singh, Vice President, Manufacturing and Supply Chain of Rank Xerox Ltd.
