Veolia Receives Preferred Quality Supplier Award from Intel
NEC member Veolia recently received Intel’s 2017 Preferred Quality Supplier award, which recognizes companies that relentlessly pursue excellence and conduct business with absolute professionalism. Veolia designs and provides water, waste and energy management solutions that contribute to the sustainable development of communities and industries.
The Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement award, Preferred Quality Supplier award, and the Supplier Achievement Award are the three levels of Intel’s supplier recognition and are part of its SCQI program. In order to be recognized for the Preferred Quality Supplier award, suppliers need to score at least 80 percent on an integrated report card that assesses yearly performance and must also achieve 80 percent or greater on a challenging continuous improvement plan. Suppliers should demonstrate solid quality and business systems as well.
Ann Kelleher, senior vice president and general manager of the Technology and Manufacturing Group at Intel said, “Companies receiving this year’s Intel Preferred Quality Suppliers award have consistently demonstrated executional excellence and constant innovation with a keen focus on quality and technology affordability.” In 2018, the SCQI program was expanded to recognize Intel’s suppliers’ achievements in diversity leadership and world-class safety program performance. Intel looks to further expand the program to include a new safety recognition.
The New England Council congratulates Veolia on being a recipient of the award and for demonstrating excellence in its field. Read more in Veolia’s press release.
