Rofin-Baasel has been recognized as one of 16 suppliers to receive Intel Corporation’s Preferred Quality Supplier (PQS) award for their performance in 2009. Rofin is recognized for their significant contributions providing Intel with laser mark equipment, deemed essential to Intel’s success.
“It is a great honor for us to receive the Preferred Quality Supplier award from Intel for the third consecutive year,” commented Günther Braun, president and CEO of ROFIN. “This award is the result of an excellent partnership and cooperation between both companies and we are proud that our laser marking products contribute to Intel’s success.”
“We were very pleased to see Rofin step up to numerous technical challenges in 2009 and make further improvements on their already world-class laser mark performance. Intel is very appreciative of their demonstrated excellence and their commitment to quality and we look forward to continuing these efforts in the future,” said Ron Rinfret, Assembly Capital Equipment Development director, Intel Corporation.
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, delivery, technology and customer satisfaction goals. Suppliers must also achieve 80 percent or greater on a challenging improvement plan and demonstrate solid quality and business systems. Furthermore, the 2009 awardees demonstrated compliance to the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition Code of Conduct and Intel’s Environmental Social Governance Program. Additional information about the SCQI program is available at supplier.intel.com/quality.
Celebrations to honor the PQS award winners will be held in conjunction with Intel’s Supplier Day events in Tokyo, Japan and Anaheim, California during the month of March 2010. In addition, an announcement will run in the March 31 U.S. edition and April 1 Europe and Asia editions of The Wall Street Journal with acknowledgement on Intel’s corporate Web site, www.intel.com.
