ZF Electronics wins Mars Gold Award for fourth consecutive year
ZF Electronics has won Mars Drinks’ coveted Gold Standard Award for Quality Performance 2010 for an amazing fourth consecutive year. Initiated several years ago and open to assured suppliers, the Mars Gold Standard Award for Quality Performance recognises robust quality management systems, consistent quality conformance and superior delivery performance - all essential supplier attributes for Mars Drinks, whose vending machines prepare more than a billion beverages every year in businesses worldwide.
Mars Drinks presents the award to the supplier who achieves specific criteria in terms of product quality and service delivery. For 2010, the criteria for the Gold Standard Award for Quality Performance included better than target parts per million rejected and better than target on time in full delivery performance.

ZF Electronics supplies a range of CHERRY D4 and DB series micro switches to Mars for use in its flagship KLIX® Outlook™ and KLIX® 450 mid-range vending machines. KLIX is the UK’s leading in-cup vending machine, serving the nation’s best-loved drinks brands and is nearly six times more reliable than its nearest competitor. Nine CHERRY switches are used in each model to control the position of the cups, door closure, water level and the position of various internal mechanisms, all of which help ensure the beverage is dispensed correctly.

Ken Dack, VQA Engineer QEPD Machines at Mars Drinks commented: “It is a genuine pleasure to present ZF Electronics with the Gold Standard Award for Quality Performance 2010 for the fourth consecutive year. This Award recognizes the contribution that ZF Electronics makes to Mars Drinks as an assured supplier, helping to build quality excellence into the Mars brands though first-class products and service. A huge “thank you” to everyone at ZF Electronics for their unstinting and continuing efforts in ensuring product quality and reliability and consistent on-time delivery. We look forward to continuing to work with you in 2011. ”

Michael Groom, Managing Director of ZF Electronics UK Ltd said: ”I’m delighted to accept this prestigious Award on behalf of everyone here. I’m proud of the tireless effort which our staff put in throughout the year to maintain these high standards, not just to Mars Drinks, but to all our customers.”
