East/West Industries has announced that it has received a 2018 Boeing Performance Excellence Award, the fourth such award in as many years. The Boeing Company issues the award annually to recognize suppliers who achieved superior performance. East/West Industries maintained a Gold composite performance rating for each month of the 12-month performance period, from October 2017 to September 2018.
This year, Boeing recognized 380 suppliers who achieved either a Gold or Silver level Boeing Performance Excellence Award out of 13,000 suppliers worldwide in 57 countries. East/West Industries is one of only 82 suppliers to receive the Gold level of recognition.
East/West Industries’ four Gold-level awards are among numerous quality awards received in its five decades of operation.
“We remain deeply focused on manufacturing high-quality products cost effectively, delivering them on-time, and backing our work with superior service,” said East/West president Teresa Ferraro. “Receiving this recognition from The Boeing Company for a fourth year in a row is a true honor and a testament to our team’s hard work to deliver on Boeing’s expectations for cost, quality, and schedule.”
Founded on Long Island in 1968, East/West designs, manufactures and repairs aircraft seats and other products critical to crew safety and survival. A range of original equipment manufacturers, including Boeing, install East/West seats and other products on aircraft they manufacture, including some of the newest commercial and military platforms under development.
