Crawley, West Sussex, UK, (March 10, 2016) – Edwards Ltd has been recognized as one of 26 companies receiving Intel Corporation’s Preferred Quality Supplier (PQS) award for their performance in 2015. Edwards has demonstrated industry-leading commitment across all critical focus areas on which they are measured: quality, cost, availability, technology, customer service, labour and ethics systems and environmental sustainability.
Edwards is recognized for their significant contributions providing Intel with the supply of vacuum and abatement solutions and associated support services in a sub fab environment, deemed essential to Intel’s success.
“Intel and Edwards have been doing business together for over 20 years and we are truly honored to receive the prestigious Intel Preferred Quality Supplier award” said Mike Allison, Vice President Semiconductor and Display, Solar and LED, Edwards. “Our two organizations have worked closely over multiple process nodes. Throughout, we have strived to continuously improve and develop our mutually beneficial business relationship. The level of collaboration and cooperative technical exchange has never been better between our two companies, and is a key element for success. We sincerely appreciate the business and the opportunity to make our contribution to the success of Intel.” Mike added, “This PQS award not only represents Edwards’ world class quality products and performance, but also validates our commitment to our key customer by providing exemplary service and support around the globe at every Intel site.”
"This award recognizes the Edwards team for providing Intel with innovative, affordable and sustainable solutions," said Cody Philpot director of manufacturing ramp strategy in the Global Supply Management at Intel. "We also applaud their excellent execution and communication as they optimize and continuously align with Intel's factory needs.”
The PQS award is part of Intel’s Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement (SCQI) program that encourages suppliers to strive for excellence and continuous improvement. To qualify for PQS status, suppliers must score 80 percent on a report card that assesses performance and ability to meet cost, quality, availability, technology, environmental, social and governance goals. Suppliers must also achieve 80 percent or greater on a challenging improvement plan and demonstrate solid quality and business systems. Additional information about the SCQI program is available at http://intel.com/go/quality.
A celebration to honor PQS award winners was held in Santa Clara, California themed “Delivering the Future Together”, which illustrates the contributions this supplier has made in 2015. In addition, there was an announcement on Intel’s website at https://newsroom.intel.com/.
