Celestica Receives Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Award From The Defense Security Service

TORONTO, July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Celestica Inc. (NYSE, TSX: CLS), a global leader in the delivery of end-to-end product lifecycle solutions, today announced it is a recipient of the 2013 James S. Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement Award from the Defense Security Service (DSS), an agency of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).

Celestica's Austin, Texas Aerospace and Defense Center of Excellence is one of 24 facilities selected out of 13,300 U.S. defense contractors evaluated for this prestigious award. This annual award recognizes consecutive superior security ratings, and sustained excellence and innovation in overall security program management, implementation and oversight.

The award criteria focus on principles of industrial security excellence. Factors include establishing and maintaining a security program that far exceeds the basic National Industrial Security Program requirements and providing leadership to other industry facilities in establishing best practices, while maintaining the highest standards for security. As part of the rigorous selection process, facilities must undergo security assessments on an annual basis and receive a 'Superior' rating at least two years in a row in order to be eligible.

"It is an honor to receive the Cogswell Award and we are very proud to be one of the few organizations selected for 2013," said Michael McGuire, President and Chairman of Celestica Aerospace Technologies Corporation. "This is a testament to the expertise and commitment of Celestica's employees at our Austin facility and a reflection of the company's ability to maintain industry-leading security practices and standards in support of our customers' mission-critical defense products."

The award was presented at the NCMS (National Classification Management Society) Seminar in Chicago on June 26, 2013, by Stan Sims, Director of the Defense Security Service.
