Boeing supplier awards reflect
"This is the first time we've honored suppliers from around the world together with our domestic suppliers," said John Hayhurst, Boeing senior vice president and president, Air Traffic Management, who addressed the awards banquet in March at the Museum of Flight in Seattle. "That is an important development, because it recognizes the global nature of our business. Today, we not only sell products and services to customers all over the world, but we buy from, and partner with, companies from all over the world."
The four international suppliers, by industry or product category, are Elta Systems Ltd. of Ashdod, Israel, for avionics; Messier-Bugatti-Aircraft Braking division of Vilizy-Villacoublay, France, for electronics, hydraulics and mechanical; Fuji Heavy Industries of Utsunomiya, Tochigi, Japan, for major structures; and JAMCO Corp. of Tokyo for interiors.
U.S. suppliers honored this year are Brek Manufacturing Co. of Gardena, Calif., for purchased outside production; Exotic Metals Forming Co. LLC of Kent, Wash., for purchased outside production; CFM of Springdale, Ohio, for propulsion; Pan Pacific Electronics Inc. of Redmond, Wash., for common aerospace commodities; Cimarron Inc. of Houston for aerospace support; L-3 Communications Display Systems (Alpharetta, Ga.) for aerospace support; Fujitsu Consulting of Edison, N.J., for non-production; EHMKE Manufacturing Co. Inc. of Philadelphia, for small business; Fine Laboratories Inc., of Piedmont, Mo., for small disadvantaged business; and Kerry Contractors Inc. of Huntington Beach, Calif., for woman-owned small business.
"These suppliers have stellar reputations as partners to Boeing, working to continually provide great technical and business solutions, while improving cost and quality for our customers," said Bill Stowers, Boeing Integrated Defense Systems vice president of Supplier Management.
"This is our opportunity to acknowledge the unique contributions these best-in-class suppliers have made to the success of Boeing and our customers," Stowers said. "More than ever, we recognize how vital our high-performing, worldwide supplier network is to us in creating a world-class global enterprise."
Stowers leads the Boeing Supplier Management Process Council, which provides strategic direction and ensures process continuity for managing more than 11,300 suppliers in 66 countries.
"This is great news for all of us at Boeing," said Alan Mulally, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "Our team worked very hard to demonstrate the 737's capabilities and better value. It's so rewarding to have such an important customer that has a great plan choose Boeing. This is about a mutually beneficial, longterm partnership."
The ANA order will not be added to Boeing order totals or appear on the
Boeing Orders and Deliveries Web site until all procedural processes for
the sale are completed.
