Metalshub Best Supplier Awards 2021

We are proud to announce the Metalshub Best Supplier Awards 2021. The prizes are awarded based on ratings given by buyers on the Metalshub platform.

Market Insights

This year, we had a total of 750+ supplier ratings submitted by our 600+ buyers on the Metalshub Platform. Stronger usage of our rating function and an increasing number of new buyer-supplier relationships based on these ratings have shown us that building a digital reputation has become increasingly important; in times where we are all condemned to maintain our productivity while being restrained from meeting in person.

With our supplier awards, we feature those suppliers that have managed to build new customer relationships and exceed customer expectations on the Metalshub platform. Our supplier selection is entirely based on on-platform ratings. We find it important to point out that Metalshub ratings are restricted to legally binding deals: they reflect real customer satisfaction and express operational excellence!

The following companies have had an especially outstanding performance; having truly embraced the digital spirit and we could not be any prouder. These are the Metalshub Super Suppliers this year (listed in alphabetical order).
