FTG Aerospace Chatsworth Top Performing Lockheed Supplier
Toronto, August 24, 2016 - Firan Technology Group Corporation (TSX:FTG) announced today that its FTG Aerospace Chatsworth business has won a top supplier award from Lockheed Martin Aeronautics for outstanding performance in 2015. To be considered for this award, suppliers must maintain a 99 percent on-time delivery rating with a 100 percent quality rating.
FTG was selected as a top supplier from the over 1,200 suppliers used by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics.
“We are honored to be selected for such a prestigious award by the world’s largest defense contractor. As we have only been doing business with Lockheed for less than two years and much of our activity is on new part numbers where designs and processes are still being developed, it is a testament to our employees’ talent and commitment to excellence that we have already been selected as a top supplier,” stated Brad Bourne, President and CEO, FTG Corporation. He added, “Across FTG, we are committed to operational excellence in everything we do and to see one of our newest sites being recognized for their outstanding performance is inspirational for all of our employees.”
FTG’s vision is to be a “Partner in Performance” for customers in the Aerospace and Defense Electronics Market. FTG is committed to work as a partner with our customers to achieve high levels of operational performance and mutual success in everything we do.
