Holt Awarded Elite Supplier Status By Lockheed Martin
APC Hi-Rel’s IC data bus manufacturing partner, Holt Integrated Circuits, has been awarded Elite Supplier Status by Lockheed Martin Corporation, one of the world’s largest defence contractors.
Previously a STAR supplier, this new recognition places Holt at the top tier of Lockheed Martin’s component supplier list. Fewer than one percent of the thousands of Lockheed’s suppliers receive this status.
Holt has been supplying Lockheed Martin with MIL-STD-1553 transceivers for their critical JDAM program since 2003 and was selected for the Elite Supplier Status award by a cross-functional leadership team at Lockheed, providing recognition across the entire Corporation. In order to achieve Elite status, a supplier must have 12 months of perfect or best-in-class quality and delivery performance, maintain a strong customer focused relationship and embrace a continuous improvement culture.
“Holt is delighted to receive this very prestigious award,” said David Mead, President and CEO of Holt. “Holt’s mission is to provide our customers with the highest level of product quality, on-time delivery and customer service, and this recognition is evidence of our on-going commitment and continuous improvement.”
Neal Holland, Supply Chain Excellence Manager at Lockheed Martin stated, “Over the years, Holt has been a critical C6ISR supplier, providing transceivers for the Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) program. We have seen exceptional quality, delivery, and customer service often times expediting product to meet our challenging changing needs.”
