Nouryon, a leading global specialty chemicals company, recently recognized its top global partners in its annual 2022 Supplier of the Year Awards event held in Rome, Italy. Suppliers were identified and rated based on strategic spend, shared commitment to innovation and sustainability, overall supplier performance and actions taken to improve Nouryon’s competitiveness. Award recipients were recognized for outstanding performance in three categories: Innovation, Reliability, and Sustainability.

EXSIF was honored to be named by Nouryon as one of its top global sourcing partners in the area of supplier reliability. Recipients in this category were recognized for exceptional supply reliability, collaboration, and close partnership with Nouryon while facing a challenging supply and demand environment.
