REO Receives Supplier Excellence Award from Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems
REO, a leading manufacturer of high volume precision optical solutions, has been awarded the “3 Star Supplier Excellence Award” by Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems (SAS). This award acknowledges REO’s performance in overall quality, on-time delivery, customer satisfaction and total business and financial health.
The Supplier Excellence selection process is undertaken annually by SAS to determine those exceptional suppliers who display consistent support for Raytheon’s critical Mission Assurance. Evaluation of supplier performance includes objective data as well as input from the Raytheon buyers and Material Program Managers who deal with the suppliers regularly. The winning suppliers in 2012 represented less than one percent of Raytheon SAS’ supply base.
“We’re gratified to receive this recognition because we highly value key accounts, such as Raytheon SAS, and are dedicated to growing our business with these customers,” states Ed Yousse, REO Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “One thing that Raytheon has emphasized to us is that consistency is a key consideration in the Supplier Excellence Award. REO is able to achieve a highly consistent final product because we are vertically integrated, controlling everything from polishing through optomechanical assembly, and even testing, in-house.”
REO produces high precision thin film coatings, optics and opto-mechanical assemblies for the ultraviolet, visible and infrared. Located in Boulder, CO, the company primarily services medium to high volume OEMs including manufacturers of defense and aerospace systems, laser systems, semiconductor tools, medical systems, life sciences instrumentation and telecom equipment. REO is a privately held company.
