Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) Integrated Defense Systems has presented Mini-Circuits with its 4-Star Supplier Award for outstanding quality and service for the seventh consecutive year. The award was presented to Mini-Circuits at Raytheon’s Operational Excellence Supplier Conference held on May 2nd in Boston, Massachusetts.

Each year Raytheon IDS awards fewer than 350 suppliers out of over 3000 with its Operational Excellence Supplier Awards. Candidates are judged on the basis of overall product quality, on-time delivery, and exemplary performance in helping Raytheon deliver mission assurance to its customers. 4-star supplier status requires better than 98% quality (no defects) and on-time delivery for a minimum period of one year with a minimum of ten shipments.

“This achievement affirms Mini-Circuits’ sustained level of world class quality, service, and technical excellence,” said Steven Scheinkopf, Worldwide Technical Marketing Manager for Mini-Circuits. “We’re proud to be a member of the Raytheon team and to support their vision of creating innovative solutions to make the world a safer place.”

Mini-Circuits is honored by Raytheon’s recognition of our consistently high standards of quality and service. We look forward to maintaining these standards while continuously improving our products and services to new levels of excellence in the future.
