Lafarge has held its first global supplier competition, which had a total of seven categories, in a ceremony at its headquarters in Paris. With its ADAMS® technology for filling powder-type products into watertight PE bags, HAVER & BOECKER was able to win in the category of 'sustainability.' The jury's reasoning was that the technology showed 'an ability to operate in a sustainable manner, including the deployment of appropriate corrective actions.'

"Suppliers play an important role in our operations, delivering value year after year and pushing the boundaries in terms of innovation and cost competitiveness," said Thierry Metro, senior vice president of Energy and Strategic Sourcing at Lafarge. "The Global Supplier Awards represents a victory for our suppliers, for Lafarge and for our customers."
