CDM Electronics, a premier authorized distributor of electronic connectors and cables, today announced it is the recipient of the 4-Star Supplier Excellence Award from Raytheon’s Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) business. The Supplier Excellence Award program was instituted to recognize suppliers that consistently deliver outstanding service and partnership in exceeding customer requirements. CDM was presented with the prestigious award at Raytheon’s Operational Excellence Conference on June 7, 2016, in Danvers, MA. This year, Raytheon IDS awarded only 159 suppliers out of over 3,000 candidates with an Operational Excellence Supplier Award, placing CDM in the top 5% of eligible nominees. Award candidates were judged on specific criteria, including overall product quality, on-time delivery, and exceptional performance. 4-Star requirements for quality (no defects) and on-time delivery are 97.5% for a minimum of one year, with a minimum of ten shipments. “Everyone at CDM is honored to have achieved the 4-Star Supplier Excellence Award from Raytheon,”said Lori Maeder, Vice President of Operations for CDM. “This recognition is testament to our enduring commitment to provide Raytheon and members of the U.S. Armed Forces with state-of-the-industry products, on-time delivery, unparalleled engineering support, and efficient logistics and business management.
