AT&S is proud to announce that it has earned the Preferred Quality Supplier (PQS) Award for 2020. Through its dedication to continuous quality improvement, AT&S has achieved a level of performance that consistently exceeds Intel’s expectations.
“As one of only 26 Preferred Quality Supplier Award winners in the entire Intel supply chain, AT&S has been vital to our success, especially during this uniquely challenging year,” said Dr. Randhir Thakur, chief supply chain officer at Intel. “They provided standout service in a critical area of the Intel supply chain and met or exceeded their annual improvement goals. Earning this award represents years of hard work, continuous improvement and truly exceptional performance.”
“I want to thank the entire Intel team for the confidence in AT&S. We are proud to have received the PQS Award, which is proof for our outstanding work and continuous dedication and contribution to the technological progress of our customers”, said AT&S CEO Andreas Gerstenmayer.
The Intel PQS Award recognizes success in the Intel Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement Program (SCQI), a multiyear road map for continuous improvement for high-performing Intel suppliers. Of the thousands of Intel suppliers around the world, only a few hundred qualify to participate in the SCQI Program.
The PQS Award is the second-highest honor a supplier can achieve. In 2020, only 26 suppliers in the entire Intel supply chain earned a Preferred Quality Supplier Award.
To qualify for an Intel Preferred Quality Supplier Award, suppliers must exceed expectations, meet aggressive performance goals and score 80 percent or higher in performance assessments throughout the year. Suppliers must also meet 80 percent or more of their improvement plan and demonstrate outstanding quality and business systems.
