Manufacturer Recognized for Superior Performance of Space Flight Program Bags and Blankets
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. – June 16, 2010 – LaminatedFILMS & Packaging has received a 2009 Boeing Performance Excellence Award. The Boeing Company issues the award annually to recognize suppliers that have achieved superior performance. LaminatedFILMS maintained a minimum Silver composite performance rating for each month of the 12-month performance period, Oct. 1, 2008, to Sept. 30, 2009.
This year, Boeing recognized 486 suppliers that achieved either a Gold or Silver level Boeing Performance Excellence Award. LaminatedFILMS, a supplier to Boeing from its dedicated facility in Melbourne, FL, for more than 20 years, is among 358 suppliers to receive the Silver level of recognition. The company supplies bagging materials used to cover satellites and blankets for the Titan family of missiles and launch vehicles built by Boeing.
“We are very proud to have been recognized by Boeing for our work in developing and supplying materials used in the U.S. space flight program,” said Jim Landers, CEO of LaminatedFILMS. “Every day, all of our employees—in both our New Hampshire and Florida facilities—strive to accommodate the detailed quality, delivery and purchasing requirements mandated by both Boeing and the Kennedy Space Center.”
“Boeing has always been viewed as a valued partner,” added Kay Wood, Plant Manager of the Melbourne facility. “Although we’ve been working with the company for more than two decades, this year all of the criteria kicked in and we were presented with this prestigious award. It’s a great way to recognize LaminatedFILMS’ ongoing dedication to developing and supplying cutting-edge packaging solutions according to Boeing’s stringent criteria.”
