Emcore receives 2019 Raytheon IDS 5-Star Supplier Excellence Award
Emcore Corp of Alhambra, CA, USA – which provides indium phosphide (InP)-based optical chips, components, subsystems and systems for the broadband and specialty fiber-optics markets – has received the 2019 Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) 5-Star Supplier Excellence Award for performance and partnership. As a 5-Star Award winner, Emcore has achieved 100% scores in quality and delivery (or a Qualitative Data Index rating of 5), demonstrated good financial health and is endorsed across Raytheon.
Raytheon’s Integrated Defense Systems business instituted the annual Supplier Excellence Awards program to recognize suppliers that have provided outstanding service and partnership in exceeding customer requirements. Award candidates are judged on certain criteria, including overall quality, on-time delivery and demonstrated commitment to continuous improvement. A 5-Star recognition is the highest level of recognition that a supplier can achieve for excellence in quality and performance, and Emcore was one of 14 companies selected.
“Our many years of ongoing collaboration with Raytheon in support of their programs at both Emcore and Systron Donner Inertial have been extremely rewarding for our teams,” says David Hoyh, Emcore’s director of global sales & marketing. “Our expert staffs in Concord and Alhambra have worked diligently to achieve the performance standards required to achieve this award,” he adds.
