Intel gives nod to 40 top suppliers

March 4, 2009 – Intel has given its nod to more than three dozen key suppliers from its roster of thousands of supply-chain partners, ranging from capital equipment manufacturers to materials, components, and service providers, as the 2008 winners of its awards for Preferred Quality Supplier (PQS) and Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement (SCQI).

To earn Intel’s top award, its supplier continuous quality improvement (SCQI) award (now in its 22nd year), 14 honorees scored at least 95% on a list of performance and ability goals, including cost, quality, availability, delivery, technology, and responsiveness, over the past year. Another 26 suppliers scored better than 80% to earn Intel’s 2008 preferred quality supplier (PQS) recognition. All winners must also adhere to a “challenging” improvement plan and a quality/business systems assessment, and comply with the Electronic Industry Code of Conduct and Intel’s Green Sustainability Program.

Intel launched the SCQI program in 1987 to improve the systems and output of key suppliers, in an effort to minimize the amount of time and money spent inspecting incoming material, goods, and services purchased. The company honored 48 suppliers in 2007, 54 suppliers in 2006, 38 in 2005, 43 in 2004, and 45 companies in 2003.
