Boeing Honors Top Suppliers

The Boeing Company (Chicago) honored 11 companies with its premier supplier award. The 2006 Supplier of the Year winners were selected from a field of more than 27,000 Boeing suppliers in nearly 100 countries. Boeing saluted the winners at an annual awards ceremony in Bellevue, Wash.

"Boeing's ongoing commitment to working together with our partners helps us meet the high standards for quality, productivity and efficiency that our customers deserve and our competitive business environment demands," said Steve Schaffer, functional leader of supplier management for Boeing.

The winning suppliers were chosen based on statistical measurements of quality, on-time delivery, post-delivery support and cost over a 12-month period through September 2006. They also were evaluated on their ability to anticipate and respond to changing customer requirements.
