„Im Rahmen der Absicherung der Lieferfähigkeit eines 1st Tier Lieferanten – im Zuge der Auswirkungen der Corona-Pandemie – habe ich MERITUS als stets kompetenten und verlässlichen Partner kennengelernt. Die Kollegen von MERITUS haben im Rahmen einer Task-Force durch hohen Einsatz innerhalb kurzer Zeit maßgeblich zur Aufrechterhaltung der Belieferung und zum Abbau des Lieferrückstandes beigetragen. Durch den professionellen und methodischen Einsatz von MERITUS konnten auch im Bereich Qualität messbare Erfolge realisiert werden.“
