Custom MMIC was the only MMIC supplier to receive Raytheon’s Five Star Supplier Excellence Award for 2018, awarded by Raytheon’s Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) business. The Five Star recognition is the highest a Raytheon IDS supplier can achieve, and Custom MMIC was one of 16 companies selected. This was the third consecutive year Custom MMIC was named a top supplier by Raytheon.

Recognizing the importance of cultivating, maintaining and nurturing strong business relationships with suppliers — essential to ensure mission readiness and success — each year IDS acknowledges the achievements of the top suppliers with outstanding support and service during the previous year. Candidates are judged on criteria including quality, on-time delivery and demonstrated commitment to continuous improvement.

“We are honored and proud to accept this distinguished award from Raytheon IDS for the third year in a row. It is fulfilling to know our team’s focus on quality, reliability and service is really making a measurable difference in our relationship with a major defense contractor such as Raytheon.” — Dave Folding, VP of Operations

Folding and Erik Suave, director of quality, attended the recognition ceremony on May 21, 2019, accepting the award on behalf of the Custom MMIC team.

Since 2006, Custom MMIC has been recognized as a top-tier supplier of high performance RF and microwave MMICs, earning numerous industry and supplier excellence awards.
