Novi, Mich. – Out of 3,200 suppliers to the worldwide BMW Group network, fifteen were honored November 7 in an evening ceremony at BMW’s Landshut, Germany plant for outstanding innovations and development services.  Among the awards, the German car and motorcycle manufacturer selected five winners in the categories Productivity, Sustainability, Efficient Dynamics, Digitization and Emotional Experience.  Preh was named the winner in the Emotional Experience category for its Modular Center Console Control Panel.

 “This award is a great tribute to the Preh team for the hard work of everyone involved in the project, as well as an incentive to continue to go the extra mile for innovation in the future. We are proud that Preh was selected as a BMW Supplier Innovation Award winner from so many suppliers,” said Christoph Hummel, President and CEO of Preh GmbH.
 

The Modular Center Console Control Panel won over the BMW jury for two reasons: first, because the different technologies are combined in a single component, and second, because of the panel’s individual configurability.
