“The Boeing supplier network is a global community of the best companies who help us build the world's best aircraft, satellite and security systems," said Stan Deal, Vice President and General Manager of Supplier Management for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "To be one of just 16 selected for a Boeing Supplier of the Year award says a great deal about Giga-tronics’ commitment to consistently achieve high standards of quality, productivity and efficiency in support of our customers."
This year’s winners represent an elite group among more than 17,525 active Boeing suppliers in nearly 52 countries around the world. This selection was based on stringent performance criteria for quality, delivery performance, cost, environmental initiatives, customer service and technical expertise.
