The China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) lauds Hoyer as an Excellent Supplier

The Chinese State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) has awarded Hoyer the title of Excellent Supplier during the 2019–2020 period. The distinguished recognition is a seal of approval for Hoyer’s work in China and provides promising prospects for even more complex marine projects in Asia.


One of the world’s largest marine companies, China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC), has awarded Hoyer Motors the distinctive title of Excellent Supplier during the 2019–2020 period. The award is a great recognition of Hoyer’s work as a supplier to the state-owned conglomerate for a number of years.

“We have selected our thirty Excellent Suppliers on the basis of an assessment embracing five significant criteria: reliability, punctual delivery, quality, price and after-sales service. Hoyer Motors is on the highest ranked suppliers because they have consistently met the five criteria for the past many years,” according to CSSC’s Supply Chain Management Team.

The award came from the two CSSC subsidiaries CSSC Hudong Heavy Machinery and CSSC-MES Diesel, with which Hoyer has worked since 2013. This is the first time in more than a decade that the title of Excellent Supplier has been awarded, this time among the company’s 1,000 registered suppliers.

Higher profile and easier access to new projects

The award is first and foremost a visible recognition of Hoyer’s work in China. But just as important, the award may be the beginning of an even greater cooperation with CSSC in the future. Michael Mantzius Andersen, Hoyer’s Sales Director in Asia explains.

“The designation allows us to become a supplier to all 20 companies in the CSSC-Power Group, which is one of the largest and most prestigious holding companies in CSSC. In addition, we raise our profile as a potential, trustworthy supplier throughout the CSSC Group,” he says and continues.

“As Hoyer’s brand becomes even more recognised by shipyards and shipowners, this improves our opportunities to contribute to bigger, more complex projects going forward. This is a seal of approval of our position and development in the Chinese market.”

Coveted global honours

Depending on how you measure it, CSSC is currently one of the two largest maritime companies in the world. The state-owned conglomerate consists of more than 500 companies, which together make up the Chinese state’s marine industry. Therefore, being named an Excellent Supplier is a great honour.

“If you want to be a player in the global marine industry, you will inevitably end up working with CSSC. This is also is why all foreign companies in the marine industry are desperate to be included on CSSC’s list of suppliers. The fact that we’ve succeeded and been recognised for this is a truly great achievement and something we’re very proud of,” Michael Mantzius Andersen says and continues:

“Being named Excellent Supplier has required all the involved departments, from production to sales, to work hard to earn it. That’s why it’s crucial for me to emphasise that each and every one of our talented employees has his or her own share in the award. It is a declaration of trust in their work and skills.”

Hoyer was awarded the diploma of Excellence Supplier in November 2020.
