Abbott Technologies Receives 3-Star Award from Raytheon
In recognition of both outstanding performance and quality, Abbott Technologies has received the prestigious 3-Star Supplier Excellence Award from Raytheon’s Integrated Defense Systems. Raytheon developed the annual awards to applaud suppliers who provide superior service and partnership that consistently exceed customer requirements.
“We’re thrilled to receive this award,” says John Batté, Abbott Technologies Sales Associate, who accepted the award on Abbott’s behalf during Raytheon’s 2015 Operational Excellence Supplier Conference at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
“The Supplier Excellence Award is based on stringent judging criteria, including on-time delivery, overall quality, and a demonstrated commitment to continuous improvement,” explains Batté. “Being recognized by Raytheon as a company that exceeds in all three areas reaffirms Abbott’s commitment to designing and manufacturing power conversion solutions with the highest quality standards. We build every unit soit provides uncompromising reliability in the harshest conditions, and that commitment to quality doesn’t stop with manufacturing and testing. Every Abbott employee puts quality and our customers first.”
During the conference, attendees also participated in breakout sessions and listened to inspirational speakers like Staff Sgt. Ryan Pitts who shared his perspectives as the Voice of the Warfighter. “During his speech, Staff Sgt. Pitts stressed ‘the importance of every part’ which mirrors the Abbott Technologies philosophy. We’re extremely focused on high reliability for all of our products and how it affects our end users. Hearing directly from someone like Pitts whose life depended on the reliability of products and parts puts a face and a name to the critical importance of quality in the work we do at Abbott Technologies. It’s something we won’t compromise on—ever.”
The Raytheon 3-Star Supplier Excellence Award is given to companies that help Raytheon deliver mission assurance to its customers. Abbott Technologies is proud to be among the recipients of this award, and we hope it brings additional assurance to all of our customers that they can always count on our products and services.
