Krone and STW have been collaborating for many years. Krone selected STW at the beginning of 2011 as their development partner and series supplier for a new Krone control unit platform. The KMC central control units are specific versions of the STW product series ESX-3XL or ESX-3XM, and have been developed for applications in highly adverse environments. The Krone applications are also subject to requirements regarding their functional safety. The J1939 slave module "KMB motor bridge" manufactured by STW according to Krone specifications was also marketed by STW as the standard product ESX-MBC. STW also meanwhile supplies the series control units to Krone for various shredder and baling press series. The use of these units in other Krone machines is being introduced successively. "In addition to its technical competence, STW particularly impresses us with its consistently high quality and production standards" says Georg Sasse, Procurement Manager at Krone.

Approximately 300 core suppliers to Krone were previously analyzed and assessed by the Krone specialists. The criteria for the "Supplier Award" were, among other things, reliability and on-time delivery as well as the complaints rate and the price-performance ratio.
Krone Managing Director Dr. Uwe Hansult, and CEO Bernard Krone, thanked their suppliers and emphasized that a medium-sized manufacturer such as Krone was unconditionally reliant on the specialist competence and reliability of strong suppliers. "The technology in our machines is becoming increasingly complex, but this is only of marginal interest to the customer, as the customer expects just one thing from us – the best quality. This is the standard we set upon our own developments and of course also on those of our suppliers".
