BOULDER, Colo., April 22 (UPI) -- U.S. company Ball Aerospace and Technologies Corp. has been named "Supplier of the Year" by Boeing for its avionics work on F/A-18 and Harpoon antenna programs.

"We are very pleased to be honored by Boeing for the outstanding day-to-day performance delivered by Ball employees on programs critical to our nation," said Rob Freedman, vice president and general manager of Ball's Tactical Solutions business unit. "Harpoon is one of our longest-running programs and demonstrates our outstanding relationship with Boeing and the confidence they have in the quality of our work."

Boeing each year honors its partners for their performance on Boeing programs. Winners are selected from more than 17,500 companies in 50 countries for awards in 16 categories. Selection is based on statistical measurements of quality, on-time delivery, post-delivery support and cost.

The ability to anticipate and respond to changing customer requirements is also part of the mix.

"These partners are critical to helping Boeing provide our customers the most affordable, highest-quality products and services possible," said Jack House, leader of Boeing's Supplier Management function.
