"Munters is once again proud to receive the prestigious PQS award from Intel. It is further recognition of Munters being a global leader in energy-efficient air treatment solutions for demanding applications and our commitment to continuous improvement with Intel. This acknowledgement of our quest to provide our customers with the perfect climate fuels our spirit for innovation," said Lars Engström, CEO of Munters Group.

The PQS award is part of Intel's Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement (SCQI) program that encourages suppliers to strive for excellence and continuous improvement. To qualify for PQS status, suppliers must score 80 percent on a report card that assesses performance and ability to meet cost, quality, availability, technology, environmental, social and governance goals. Suppliers must also achieve 80 percent or greater on a challenging improvement plan and demonstrate solid quality and business systems.
