Boeing honored 14 companies and two academic institutions April 18 at the Boeing Supplier of the Year event, recognizing their exceptional performance and contributions to the company’s overall success during 2011.
The Supplier of the Year awards are based on quality, on-time delivery, post-delivery support, and cost and demonstrated ability to anticipate and respond to changing requirements.

Boeing annually purchases more than $50 billion in goods and services from a global network of more than 28,000 suppliers that collectively employ more than 1.2 million people.
“In today’s challenging business environment, an agile supply chain that continuously delivers excellent performance is critical,” said Jack House, vice president of Supplier Management for Boeing Defense, Space and Security and leader of Boeing’s company-wide Supplier Management program. “These partners have demonstrated outstanding commitment to providing our customers with the best-value, highest-quality products and services, while meeting the customers’ requirements and anticipating their needs for the future.”
