Muskogee Technology achieves Supplier Excellence Award
Muskogee Technology (MT) was awarded the Silver Boeing Performance Excellence Award for 2015 at the Supplier of the Year/Global Supplier Conference in Seattle. This is the fourth year in a row Muskogee Technology has won either the gold or silver recognition from The Boeing Co.
"We are so proud that Muskogee Technology has been honored with this award from Boeing again this year," Tribal Chair/CEO Stephanie Bryan said. "This award is a direct reflection of all the hard work and dedication of everyone who works on a daily basis at MT to make it such a success."
MT also was nominated for the Supplier of the Year award by the buyers with which MT has relationships and consistently does business. These buyers presented examples of Muskogee Technology going above and beyond the call of duty to get the job done and how MT was able to swiftly adapt to changes in product orders and deadlines.
The conference pays tribute to the great alliance between Boeing and its global supply chain partners — as Boeing stated it, "You are the best of the best." Muskogee Technology remains committed to performance excellence and it shows.
"It was my pleasure to be there and receive this excellence award on behalf of Muskogee Technology," MT's Director of Marketing Mal McGhee said. "We are honored to be part of an elite supply chain group for Boeing and we look to continue strengthening our partnership with them for years to come."
Out of the more than 13,000 Boeing certified suppliers in 47 countries, less than 400 suppliers were invited to the conference. Of the companies attending, 75 were from outside the U.S. and present to network. That makes it even more special for Muskogee Technology to be invited and honored with a fourth excellence award for workmanship.
"Not only was Muskogee Technology among such a small number of companies to be invited, MT represented the Small Disadvantaged Business group as well. There were only a handful of minority companies that made the cut," McGhee said. "That goes a long way in gaining other contracts with other companies down the road. To be able to leverage our success for more opportunities means we are on the right track to continued success with companies such as Boeing things. I am extremely proud of our team here at Muskogee Technology. And I am happy for what it means for the future of our Tribe."
McGhee met with the top representatives of Boeing during the conference, including Kent Fisher, who is the vice president of supplier management for Boeing's commercial airplanes.
Boeing is in its centennial year, and the conference focused on the company's history and its future. The event featured Boeing's CEO as the keynote speaker and had hands-on exhibits showcasing the vast areas in which Boeing is involved and the possibilities that lie ahead.
