"Intel's Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement process and Preferred Quality Supplier awards have benefited both Intel and its suppliers," said Gidu Shroff, vice president, Intel's Technology and Manufacturing Group and director of Materials. "We instituted this process to drive quality and continuous improvement in our supply base. In return, we have seen our component quality improve and our supply-chain business practices advance. I am thrilled for this year's recipients and proud to be associated with such outstanding companies that are obviously leaders in their respective industries."

"The Preferred Quality Supplier award winners this year have demonstrated a significant commitment to total customer satisfaction during a difficult year for our industry," said Jai Hakhu, vice president, Intel's Technology and Manufacturing Group and general manager of technology manufacturing engineering. "Their contributions of innovative technology, ongoing cost reduction and their focus on customer support have been exemplary."

The PQS awards are part of Intel's Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement process that encourages suppliers to strive for excellence and continuous improvement. To qualify for PQS status, suppliers must score high on a report card that assesses performance and ability to meet cost, quality, availability, technology and responsiveness goals. Suppliers must also manage and deliver on a challenging improvement plan and a quality systems assessment. Additional information about the SCQI program is available at
