MTA says it has been named FCA Supplier of the Year during the EMEA 2020 Supplier Conference, held in Turin last month (December, 2020).
The first supplies to Fiat by MTA started in 1966 and the Codogno company in northern Italy is an FCA supplier for the EMEA, LATAM and APAC markets.
FCA assessed the performance of suppliers in terms of quality, innovation, development management, pro-activeness, commitment and punctuality.
“We are honoured to have received the award as Supplier of the Year 2020, in recognition of our assiduous support to FCA”, said MTA Group CEO, Antonio Falchetti. “As a leading technology company, MTA is committed to providing solutions and products, always with a strong focus on being flexible and on timely deliveries to customers”.
Codogno, South East of Milan, where the MTA headquarters is located producing electromechanical and electronic products among others, was the first municipality forced to lock down in Italy due to the pandemic outbreak in February, 2020.
“The memory of those days is still alive: the fear of contagion, the need to continue to ensure supplies to each of our customers, made us live really difficult moments,” added Falchetti. “I fought to get MTA to reopen and with me every person who works in the company, at all levels.
“We have shown we firmly believe in a single goal, that we can overcome even difficult times like these and we must be proud of it.
“I would like to dedicate this award to my father, Umberto Falchetti, who passed away nine months ago. As president of the MTA Group, he has always been by my side in my twenty years of managing the company and I am sure he would be proud today of this important recognition from FCA.”
