Tacoma, WA (PRWEB) February 14, 2013
General Plastics Manufacturing Company today announced that it has received a 2012 Boeing Performance Excellence Award. The Boeing Company presents the award annually to recognize suppliers who have achieved superior performance. General Plastics maintained a Silver composite performance rating for quality and delivery each month of the 12-month performance period, from Oct. 1, 2011, to Sept. 30, 2012.
This year, Boeing recognized 594 suppliers who achieved either a Gold- or Silver-level Boeing Performance Excellence Award. General Plastics is one of only 441 suppliers to receive the Silver level of recognition, which also confers eligibility for Supplier of the Year.
“Being honored four years in a row for outstanding achievement clearly demonstrates General Plastics’ unwavering pursuit of consistency – in both the quality of our products, and delivery of what we promise,” said President Bruce Lind. “Even after half a century of partnership, we do not take our relationship for granted.”
General Plastics supplies flight deck and cabin interior components to Boeing for all models of the 737, 747, 767, 777 and 787 aircraft. The company produces high-strength, lightweight, flame-resistant composite core materials and edge closeout for honeycomb structures. These products are used in Boeing’s aircraft flight deck pads, passenger cabin walls and ceilings, passenger compartment overhead stow bins, service-class divider partitions, food-service galleys, and lavatories. Boeing also relies on General Plastics’ extensive experience with polycarbonate and acrylic sheets for aircraft passenger windowpanes and wingtip-lens transparencies.
“Earning the Boeing Performance Excellence Award reflects the ongoing dedication of our entire team to upholding the highest performance standards,” Lind added. “By meeting our customers’ needs and continually developing creative solutions, we help propel their success and competitiveness in the global economy.”
