Mr. Rey said that in winning CCAI’s 2012 Overall Supplier of the Year, the refrigeration supplier Frigoglass Indonesia had comprehensively delivered on the criteria of the core objectives of the program but had also intimately engaged with our business to pro-actively and comprehensively understand our requirements and delivered on these ahead of our expectations.
