KYOCERA Recognized For Excellence By Raytheon Space And Airborne Systems For Second Consecutive Year

Stocks in this article: KYO

Kyocera America, Inc. was recognized by Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems (SAS) for Supplier Excellence in 2012, representing the company’s second consecutive 3-Star Supplier Excellence award. This honor acknowledges Kyocera’s performance in overall quality, on-time delivery, customer satisfaction, and total business and financial health.

The Supplier Excellence selection process is undertaken annually by SAS to determine those most exceptional suppliers who display consistent support for Raytheon’s critical Mission Assurance. Evaluation of supplier performance includes objective data as well as input from the Raytheon buyers and Material Program managers who deal with the suppliers regularly. The winning suppliers in 2012 represented less than one percent of Raytheon SAS’ supply base.

Presentation of the 3-Star Excellence trophy was made by Raytheon Subcontracts Manager, Ron Uselton, to Rick Sigliano, vice president of North American Product Sales at the Kyocera facility in San Diego. “Kyocera America is honored to receive this prestigious award for the second year in a row, recognizing our employees for exceptional support to Raytheon and to our country’s service men and women,” said Sigliano. “Kyocera’s core philosophy of putting customers first is at the foundation of the company’s relationship with Raytheon. Kyocera is honored to provide continued program support to Raytheon SAS.”
