TTI’s Supplier Excellence Awards (2009) recognize outstanding performance in a number of tightly-measured categories over the year.
Commented Geoff Breed, Vice President Marketing, TTI, Inc., Europe: “Our European Awards reward best-in-class performance by our suppliers each year. We do this by closely monitoring and tracking certain criteria throughout the year and evaluating the specifics of our business with all our suppliers. More than just a trophy, these awards signify suppliers that have made great contributions to the way TTI‘s business is run and the level of performance we are able to provide to our customers. We congratulate all the winners and thank them for the efforts they have made to help support our customers.”
Andrew McQuilken, CEO of Harwin, added: “As a manufacturer of interconnect systems and components for high-rel applications, we know that excellent service levels are as important as continual product innovation. Because the TTI awards are the result of thorough scrutiny of a range of performance indicators, we are honoured to be placed so highly, especially as a specialised connector supplier.”
