Intel's Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement Award 2009

Munters Corporation Receives Intel's Prestigious Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement Award

Munters Corporation has been recognized as one of 10 suppliers to receive Intel Corporation’s prestigious Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement (SCQI) award. The award recognizes extraordinary commitment to quality and exceptional performance to Intel’s goals and is the company’s highest honor for its suppliers. In 2009 Munters provided VOC abatement equipment deemed vital to Intel’s success.

“We at Munters are proud to again receive this most prestigious SCQI award from Intel. As a leading provider of energy-efficient air treatment solutions for demanding applications, our continuous improvement proceeds within the long term customer partnerships with Intel and other customers,” said Lars Engström, CEO of Munters Group.

“We are pleased to announce that Munters Corporation has received Intel’s SCQI award for the second year in a row. Munters has been a valuable partner to Intel for over a decade. We congratulate them for their achievement and look forward to their continued support,” said Tom Brady, Corporate Environmental manager, Intel.

The SCQI award is part of Intel’s Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement program, which encourages Intel’s key suppliers to strive for excellence and continuous improvement. To qualify for SCQI status, suppliers must score at least 95 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 90 percent or greater on a challenging improvement plan and demonstrate solid quality and business systems. Furthermore, this year’s 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 http://supplier.intel.com/quality.

Celebrations to honor the SCQI 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.
