MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY INC. WINS McDONNELL DOUGLAS SUPPLIER AWARD

 ST. LOUIS, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- In one year's time, Manufacturing Technology Inc. of Ft. Walton Beach, Fla., has turned their bronze-level Preferred Supplier award from McDonnell Douglas Aerospace into a silver and is showing signs of achieving the next and highest level of certification -- the gold.
 MTI first became a McDonnell Douglas Aerospace Preferred Supplier at the bronze level in September 1992. The company's desire to continuously improve the quality of their products, its delivery rate, and its manufacturing and business processes recently earned MTI the silver-level award.
 MTI did this by delivering its product orders on schedule 100 percent of the time for six consecutive months and by producing quality products 100 percent of the time for 12 consecutive months.
 MTI -- the U.S. government's National Small Business Contractor of the Year in 1991 and the recipient of the U.S. Small Business Administration Administrator's Award of Excellence -- also is teamed with McDonnell Douglas on the U.S. government's Mentor-Protege Pilot Program. This initiative encourages major Department of Defense contractors to provide developmental assistance to enterprises that qualify as small disadvantaged businesses. The protege company also must desire improvement in areas where the mentor has expertise. Emerging small disadvantaged businesses with less than 250 employees are preferred.
 Under the mentor-protege arrangement, McDonnell Douglas is coaching MTI with technical assistance and quality training that will enable the small company to add to its product line and become even more competitive. The agreement was finalized in August 1993 and runs for three years.
 Also in August, McDonnell Douglas awarded MTI a $4.1 million subcontract to design and develop a pressure transmitter set for the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps' F/A-18 E/F Hornet strike fighter. The pressure transmitter set relays critical atmospheric information to the aircraft's flight control computer.
