December, 11th, 2017 – Monocrystal, a global leader in synthetic sapphire growing and processing, received the status of “Integration Partner”, thus reaching the highest possible supplier grade with OSRAM Opto Semiconductors GmbH.
OSRAM runs an efficient Supplier Classification Program aimed at evaluating and qualifying business partners that can optimize OSRAM’s value chain and bring cutting-edge solutions, which can further drive both parties’ sustainable growth and development. Benefits of being an integration partner of OSRAM include early involvement in OSRAM’s strategic programs, regular technological roadmap alignment, and extensive communication on all levels.
