Hertel voted Contractor of the Year by Monsanto Antwerp
Monsanto recently announced that the Hertel team in Belgium has won the 2010 contractor award for providing the highest level of quality and safety.
Monsanto is committed to providing a safe site. The proof lies in the high number of safety and quality assessments that the company carries out every year.
Peter Wouters, project buyer at Monsanto, explained, "Excellent safety performance requires constant vigilance and therefore continuous assessment. That's why our people carry out site safety and quality inspections very regularly. In 2010, we carried out as many as two thousand. This requires a lot of hard work, but it gives us a balanced view of the performance delivered by the different contractors on site."
After analysing the various assessments, Hertel, along with Cegelec and HCI, demonstrated the best performance in the 2010 working year. Mr. Wouters added, "We really value the commitment of Hertel. The fact that people attended our various meetings shows that Hertel invests in quality and safety. Smooth interaction between the two parties helped contribute to this outcome. The award is the icing on the cake represented by year of hard work, and I would just like to congratulate everyone at Hertel and the other contractors, and encourage them to maintain the same momentum."
Maintenance team leader, Guido Truyen, whose role includes responsibility for the on-site maintenance contractors at Monsanto, also thanked the Hertel team for their efforts. "Ultimately, it's our people who make the decision to put quality and safety first throughout the whole year."
