Calumet Electronics Corporation received a World-class Team award from Northrop Grumman Corporation for its outstanding performance. Calumet is one of just 24 small business suppliers across the nation to receive the award and the only recipient from Michigan.

The award recognizes companies that have demonstrated exceptional support and commitment to Northrop Grumman’s business objectives through “delivery performance, outstanding program support, superior technical achievement, and cost performance/competitiveness and continuous process improvement.”

Calumet Electronics’ CEO Stephen Vairo said, “We’re grateful for Northrop Grumman’s ongoing commitment to supporting a diverse array of small businesses and honored to receive recognition as a World-class Team. Northrop Grumman has been a key partner for us as we focus on delivering next-gen technologies and helping solve the industry’s supply issues. Together we are strengthening American electronics.”

This year marks the 30th year Northrop Grumman recognized suppliers with World-class Team awards for supporting its supplier diversity program. The company’s supplier diversity program strives to ensure that capable small businesses receive maximum practicable subcontracting opportunities on all major programs. These small businesses include disadvantaged, women-owned, veteran-owned, and service-disabled veteran-owned, HUBZone small businesses, disability-owned, AbilityOne organizations, LGBTQ+ businesses, and Historically Black Colleges/Universities and Minority Institutions.

Calumet Electronics is America’s only HUBZone-certified PCB manufacturer. The company is 100% owned and controlled by U.S. citizens. The principal offices and manufacturing campus are located in rural Upper Michigan near Lake Superior, Michigan, USA.
