Hella has been presented with the 2020 Supplier of the Year award in the Innovation category by agricultural machinery manufacturer Claas. The accolade acknowledges the high degree of transparency and initiative in the development of new lighting and electronic solutions.
For several decades now, Hella and Claas have been working together to develop innovative and tailor-made lighting and electronic components, from prototype to pre-series to series production.
“I would like to thank the entire Hella team for their great commitment to serving this important customer,” the company’s director of global sales for agricultural, turf and utility machines Kristian Vuksan, said at the event. “This award is a great honour for us and validates our ability to transfer innovative technologies from the automotive sector to our heavy-duty customer segment.
“This motivates us even more to continue to develop and implement design-driven solutions in a modular manner in conjunction with smaller production volumes.”
In the near future, Hella will be launching innovative developments such as matrix illumination for the agricultural and construction machinery sector as well as smart work lamps. The transfer and adaptation of technology and quality know-how from the automotive sector forms the basis for the high competitiveness in terms of costs and innovations.
