General Motors - Supplier of the Year 2019 & 2018

Two years in a row, Bühler Motor was named Supplier of the Year by General Motors.

It is based on performance criteria in the areas of product purchasing, global sourcing and manufacturing services, customer support and service, and logistics.

Lean & Green
Management Award 2017

The Bühler Motor plant in Monheim was awarded 1st prize in the “Automotive Mid-Sized” category for the second time. In giving reasons for this decision, the “Bühler greentech motor” approach was particularly emphasized. The jury listed the company’s “lean strengths” as the outstanding production and logistics processes, the flat decision-making structures and an efficient product support team on site.

Innovation prize
from the USA

Every year, the German American Chambers of Commerce (GACC) recognizes outstandingly innovative companies in the USA. In October 2017, Bühler Motor received the award in the “Excellence in Innovation” category. The focus was on Bühler Motor’s intelligent electric water pumps, which make a major contribution to the production of hybrid and fully electric vehicles with their innovative technologies.

Entrepreneurship Award

In April 2016, the ALPHAZIRKEL presented the Family Entrepreneurship Award for the first time. This prize is awarded to family firms that have been exemplary in their ability to develop and reinvent themselves through the generations. From the 14 finalists, the Bühler Motor Group was chosen as the overall winner.

Lean & Green Management 
Award 2014

First prize in the “Automotive Mid-Sized” category went to The Bühler Motor plant in Monheim in September 2014. The award pays tribute to the most successful approaches for improving the efficient use of resources throughout the company. This was decided by an independent jury led by Growth Consulting and Quadriga Consult.

Bavaria’s Best 50

Every year, the Bavarian State Ministry for Business and the Media, Energy and Technology presents the Bayerns Best 50 (Bavaria's Best 50) prize to the 50 fastest-growing medium-sized companies in Bavaria. One of the deciding factors for the award in July 2014 was the company's above-average rise in sales and in the size of its workforce.

Supplier of the Year – 
General Motors

Bühler Motor receives the Supplier of the Year Award from General Motors in 2013. 68 automobile suppliers were rewarded for having consistently exceeded expectations and having made an extraordinary contribution. Fewer than one percent of all suppliers worldwide receive this award from General Motors.

Automotive Lean Production Award

The corporate objective of “breathing” production systems that adapt completely flexibly to customer requirements helped Bühler Motor to win the Automotive Lean Production Award in the “National Mid-Sized” category in 2009. The award presented by Agamus Consult, honors the systematic transfer and further development of measures successfully implemented in the Monheim plant to all Bühler Motor production sites worldwide.

Axia Award for Outstanding Company Management

The focus of the Axis Award presented in 2008 by Deloitte was on company management, particularly corporate accounting and financing. We received the award in the “Mastering the Present” category thanks to our consistent use of the balanced scorecard (BSC). This is used by every department at Bühler Motor and plays a major part in efficient operational control.
