Industry analyst Frost & Sullivan (F&S) has confirmed that Europlacer takes the accolade of Global Company of the Year in the SMT pick & place sector for 2020. This marks Europlacer’s sixth Frost & Sullivan award.

F&S commended Europlacer for its stable market position through industry-leading technology, a global footprint and “unmatched customer service and experience”, as well as its “top-notch leadership and strong overall performance.”

The F&S Company of the Year award is significant in recognising a market leading position obtained from the analyst firm’s own industry observers and independent research. To receive the award requires a company to demonstrate excellence in growth, innovation and leadership; attributes that translate into superior performance in demand generation, brand development and competitive positioning. F&S sees these as defining characteristics behind two key factors that underpin its Company of the Year Award: Visionary Innovation & Performance, and Customer Impact.

In its report conclusion that justifies the award decision, F&S singles out Europlacer’s customer satisfaction rating among several industry-leading attributes, stating that customer satisfaction as a key differentiator is also one of Europlacer’s cornerstones.
