Helios Technologies Inc. announced yesterday that its subsidiary, Faster S.r.l, has been selected as a recipient of the John Deere Supplier Innovation Award for 2020 for its multi-connection couplings with integrated valve system.
The award is presented to a select group of suppliers who have demonstrated innovation in a product or service they provide to John Deere. Award selections are based on four factors: creativity, feasibility, collaboration, and bottom-line impact. John Deere created the Supplier Innovation Awards in 2010 to promote innovation in the company’s supply base and to recognize suppliers who think creatively.
Josef Matosevic, the Company’s President and CEO, commented, “We thank John Deere for this great honor. This is a tremendous recognition for Helios Technologies’ vision and progress towards smart hydraulics. Faster S.r.l. supplies quick release couplings to John Deere operations throughout the world. In synergy with our Sun Hydraulics LLC business, our engineering teams have combined the advantages and features of MultiFaster and Sun electrohydraulic cartridge valves into an integrated manifold, reducing complexity and increasing reliability of the hydraulic circuit as a result.”
Matosevic added, “Our relationship with Deere dates back more than 35 years, and we look forward to extending our productive relationship well into the future.”
