Baldor wins major industry award


Baldor Australia has been awarded the 2009 Motion Industries National Supplier of the Year Award at a supplier presentation dinner held by Wesfarmers Industrial and Safety in Sydney recently.

The award recognises outstanding performance by Baldor, and a willingness and ability to provide superior service and support to Motion Industries.
Motion Industries is one of a number of big name companies within the Wesfarmers Industrial and Safety division. Others include Blackwoods, Bullivants, Bakers, Total Fasteners and Protector Alsafe.

The theme and evaluation criterion for the awards was Partnering for Growth.

Baldor scored high marks in the feedback survey completed by regional and departmental Motion Industries team members.
The areas considered included:
• Actively supports growth
• Offers value added services (training)
• Sales and marketing support
• Responsiveness (DIFOT, dealing with enquiries)

Baldor was commended for its willingness to partner for the future, having provided extensive training during the year to the Motion Industries engineering sales team across Australia.

Several Baldor engineers travelled from the US, and joined local sales engineers at regional training days to pass on detailed knowledge of products, applications and solution. This helped to build on the relationship and extend the product knowledgebase within Motion Industries.
