Business Partnership Award

Winner: Siemens Healthineers

Entry Overview

Procurement helped to place Siemens Healthineers at the forefront of global efforts to tackle the challenge of Covid-19 by working cross-functionally on the development and manufacturing of rapid antigen tests. The team was able to qualify a supplier in just two weeks, before working hand-in-hand to develop the tests, scale-up manufacturing and ensure the necessary logistics capacity was ready for the roll-out. In just a few months, the tests were being delivered – supporting the world’s battle against Covid-19.

Judges’ feedback

“A powerful example of developing, delivering and sustaining a critical business need which required supply chain partners (existing and new) to work together against unpredictable and ever changing requirements requiring collaboration across multiple touch points including border control. To deliver a solution in 8 weeks from start to finish is outstanding.”
