Materion Doubly Honored
Customers Recognize Company for Excellence
The operations staff at Materion was greatly pleased to be recognized with two performance awards in 2014. Receiving the "Perfect Quality Award" from ON Semiconductor and the "Supplier Excellence Award" from Analog Devices Inc. exemplified the care taken in providing all our customers with superior products and services. Materion Advanced Materials President Donald Klimkowicz commented, "I am very proud of our team for being honored with two recent awards. Our people have always focused on delivering quality offerings to our customers. We will continue to provide the excellent support and premium products that all our customers have come to expect from us.”
Perfect Quality Award
ISMF, the Malaysian manufacturing plant of ON Semiconductor, will present the "Annual Perfect Quality Award" trophy in Malaysia at a later date. It credits Materion’s operations team for achieving a "perfect" rating for quality control and for the highest performance among eight materials suppliers. Materion was cited for supplying ON Semiconductor with "perfect quality product" for 33 shipments in 2014 that included a variety of thin film materials used in wafer fabrication.
ON Semiconductor is a broad-based global supplier of semiconductor components that serves a variety of markets including automotive, computing, consumer, LED lighting, military/aerospace, industrial and communications.
Supplier Excellence Award
Materion was also honored for "supplier excellence" by Analog Devices Inc. (ADI), a world leader in high performance signal processing. Presented annually, this award is given to outstanding suppliers who "partner" with ADI and contribute to their business success while maintaining quality standards and advancing technology.
Throughout 2014, Materion facilities in Buffalo, NY, Brewster, NY, Milwaukee, WI, Subic Bay, Philippines and Singapore were key suppliers to ADI of packaging materials and thin film products. Among the products supplied to ADI were platinum targets, silicon chromium targets and Combo-Lids™. The ceremony was held in Hong Kong in March with Chee Kong Lee, Vice President of Materion Advanced Materials Asia accepting the award. Representing Materion from Buffalo, NY was Christopher Konczyk, Regional Manager. Materion was presented the Supplier Excellence Award in the category of "Indirect materials."
