DRS wins supplier excellence award from Northrop Grumman

DRS Technologies Inc., a Finmeccanica Company, was among 24 suppliers selected from more than 5,000 to win an award for excellence from the Northrop Grumman Corporation.

DRS’s C4ISR business group was recognized for providing outstanding support on a challenging and sensitive program with high visibility from Northrop’s Information Systems sector. The DRS team maintained a consistently high performance rating in the company’s supplier assessment system for eight consecutive quarters, continually meeting or exceeding all contractual requirements.

“This honor clearly demonstrates the value of excellent customer service, transparent relationships, building trust and building partnerships,” said Terry Murphy, chief operating officer at DRS Technologies. ”These are pillars of our business. Whether DRS is a prime contractor or a sub, we value our teammates, and it shows in the strength of our relationships and why our customers prefer to work with DRS,” according to Murphy.

The Northrop Grumman recognition program acknowledges the contributions of suppliers and incentivizes them to constantly provide outstanding support to the company. Each award recipient was evaluated on five criteria: schedule, management, technical acumen, financial discipline and quality.

“The Information Systems sector congratulates each of these companies on receiving this year’s Supplier Excellence Award,” said Cynthia Hyland, sector vice president, supply chain at Northrop Grumman. “This is a highly competitive award and we are pleased to honor each of them for their excellent support to our programs and our customers’ missions,” Hyland said.
