Forklift specialist STILL was the honoured recipient of the John Deere Partner Award at a Mannheim event recently. A panel, made up of representatives from different John Deere plants throughout Europe, evaluated STILL’s best qualities in categories such as quality, supplier reliability, technical support and cost management.
For over 50 years, STILL and John Deere, a global leader in agricultural machinery, have been forging a successful business relationship. STILL is the primary supplier for the agricultural machinery manufacturer in Europe, whose fleet consists of roughly 650 STILL trucks, with tugger trains and warehouse trucks being the most popular product. “We’re really excited about receiving the award. John Deere is a company which we’ve been associated with for decades. Our successful partnership can now be strengthened even further”, says Philip Eckmann, International Key Account Manager at STILL.
Over the years STILL has proven itself time and again as a high quality supplier, developing equipment specifically to the customer’s needs, continuous support with logistics processes at different production sites and spare parts stock.
STILL offers customized intralogistics solutions and implements the intelligent teamwork of forklift trucks and warehouse technology, software and services. The achievement created by the Company’s founder Hans Still in 1920 through a large amount of creativity, entrepreneurial spirit and quality quickly developed into a strong brand well-known throughout the world. Today, around 9,000 qualified staff are involved in research and development, production, marketing and service for the sole purpose of fulfilling customers’ needs throughout the whole world. The keys to the company’s success are highly efficient products ranging from sector-specific complete offers for large and small enterprises to computer-assisted logistics programs for efficient warehouse and materials flow management.
