The Bosch Global Supplier Award recognizes companies that have performed exceptionally well in manufacturing and supplying products or services to Bosch over the past two years.  The award is bestowed by an independent committee within the Bosch organization based on criteria such as quality, pricing, reliability, technology and continuous improvement.  Joseph M. Gingo, A. Schulman's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, accepted the award on behalf of the A. Schulman team on July 4, 2013, in Stuttgart, Germany.

"A. Schulman is honored to receive this prestigious global supplier award from Bosch, reflecting our strong commitment to this outstanding global company," Gingo said.  "This award speaks to our 'Passion for Plastics' and ability to meet a key global customer's high expectations to deliver innovative, competitive solutions on an international basis, backed by our local service and support.
