Siemens wins Transport for London Supplier of the Year award

Siemens has been recognised by Transport for London (TfL) as its Supplier of the Year in the organisation’s inaugural supplier awards.

TfL works with a number of different suppliers and more than 60% of its procurement is with companies outside London. This investment supports around 50,000 jobs outside of London.

A statement from TfL said: “Siemens has proven itself to be an outstanding supplier, working with TfL to support women back into employment and developing the potential of those already in the transport industry.

“Siemens has also developed its operational practices when installing traffic signals to increase efficiency and reduce the impact on customers and have been a key part of the success of delivering 36 trains per hour on the Victoria line.”

Suppliers were recognised for their efforts across a range of areas, from increasing opportunities for those underrepresented in the workplace to their work to protect the environment. There were more than 80 submissions for the eight different awards, which were then shortlisted before the winners were announced on November 15.

The full list of winners were as follows:

Collaboration – Bam Nuttall

Best Health Initiative - Costain Skanska JV

Best Safety Initiative - FM Conway

Best Environmental Initiative - Ferrovial Laing O’Rourke JV

Best Apprenticeship Scheme – Thales (winner), Exterion Media (special recognition)

Best scheme for increasing those underrepresented in the workplace - Siemens

Best Efficiencies and Innovation – Siemens and Telent (joint winners)

Best SME – Buzz Interactive

The competition was so fierce that two winners were chosen for the Best Efficiencies and Innovation category, while Exterion Media were given a special recognition award in the Best Apprenticeship Scheme category.
