Rico, an Austrian injection moulding and mould manufacturing specialist has been named supplier of the year 2019 by baby product manufacturer MAM. MAM, a producer of soothers and bottles, as well as cups, oral care and teething products, cutlery and breastfeeding products, first partnered with Rico five years ago, drawn by the moulder’s 25-year track record in mould manufacturing and injection molding of high-quality single- and multi-component silicone parts.
The two companies have collaborated on the production of a host of different projects, including silicone bottle teats and breastfeeding products for MAM.
This is the first time MAM has held an awards event for its suppliers and Rico is proud to have won the first ever supplier of the year in the category for major suppliers of assembly parts for baby products presented by the baby product manufacturer.
Further projects are in the pipeline and MAM would like to intensify the partnership. Harald Schermann, MAM’s head of technical product management & strategic technical purchasing, said the award demonstrated how firmly established as an important strategic partner for MAM Rico has become in just a short space of time. “We also see this award as a driving force for continuously developing our partnership,” he added.
