Rockwell Automation has been named a recipient of Intel Corporation’s Preferred Quality Supplier (PQS) award for outstanding performance in providing products and services, deemed essential to Intel’s success.
‘It is with honour that Intel recognises Rockwell Automation for winning the PQS award for the second consecutive year,’ said Leon Cooley, manager of Southwest Regional Projects, Intel. ‘Rockwell Automation has provided Intel with programmable logic controllers and accompanying software since 1981. Rockwell has continued to provide high quality products and support during a turbulent year by presenting a one-company concept through more than 10 authorised distributors.’
PQS awards are part of Intel’s Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement (SCQI) process to encourage suppliers to strive for excellence. To qualify for PQS status, suppliers must score highly on a quality systems assessment and a supplier report card, as well as meet challenging performance expectations against an improvement plan.
Keith Nosbusch, president for Control Systems at Rockwell Automation said: ‘As Intel grows, Rockwell Automation continues to provide solutions that improve productivity and lower costs. We value our long-term relationship and look forward to future success for Intel and its customers.
