Trio-Tech International (NYSE Amex:TRT) announced today that it received a Distinguished Innovative Supplier Award from Freescale Semiconductor at the Freescale Technologies Forum held in San Antonio last month. Rich Beyer, Freescale's Chief Executive Officer, presented the award to Trio-Tech.

"Freescale customers expect innovation, speed, collaboration and customer focus from us, and we expect the same from our vendors. Trio-Tech has demonstrated these qualities in its semiconductor burn-in support for Freescale. Freescale challenged Trio-Tech to provide new capacity, in Tian-Jin China, and the new site was identified, staffed and qualified to support automotive products in less than ten months after the initial request. This was one of the fastest transition and qualification processes in our company's history. Trio-Tech has distinguished itself with its rapid response to Freescale's needs. We are pleased to recognize Trio-Tech with the Distinguished Innovative Supplier Award," said Bill McKean, VP of External Manufacturing and Chief Procurement Officer for Freescale.

Trio Tech CEO S.W. Yong said, "Trio-Tech's philosophy has always been to be a partner, not just a supplier, to our customers. We make it our business to understand the customer's needs and exceed their expectations. Trio-Tech is proud to be part of the winning team at Freescale."
