Last week, 18/04/2013, Boeing gave Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company a ‘Boeing Supplier of the Year’ award.
The award was handed out on the back of Goodyear’s extraordinary performance as well as their involvement in the Boeing Company’s achievements thought the last calendar year (2012 to you and me).
The tyre manufacturer was one of 16 companies to be bestowed with the Supplier of the Year award – at a ceremony held in the San Diego Convention Centre.
In total, Boeing uses over 23,000 suppliers from across the globe, making Goodyear’s achievement more than noteworthy.
Talking at the award ceremony, Jack House, vice president of Supplier Management for Boeing Defense, Space & Security, said “In today’s challenging business environment, an agile supply chain that continuously delivers excellent performance is critical.
“The suppliers receiving Supplier of the Year awards 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.”
