Lockheed Martin relies heavily on materials, services, solutions, resources and components through our small businesses to provide our customers with world-class products.
Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) May 27, 2010
Each year, Lockheed Martin business units in Orlando, FL, and Dallas, TX, nominate and select small businesses that have consistently provided outstanding support and products during the past year. Though the Corporation has thousands of suppliers, only a few of the small businesses are recognized for their outstanding quality in goods and service.
At an awards banquet in Orlando, executives from the Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control and Lockheed Martin Simulation, Training & Support business units presented awards to 18 companies.
ARMORIT was awarded Outstanding Supplier status by Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, citing that their quality and delivery performance has been consistently out-standing while delivering critically complex products that satisfy a myriad of quality and technical requirements. ARMORIT was also given accolades for their commitment to innovation both in their tools and techniques to ensure the highest level of customer satisfaction.

Berry, president of Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. “Lockheed Martin relies heavily on materials, services, solutions, resources and components through our small businesses to provide our customers with world-class products.”
