Spirit recognized GKN at the Spirit AeroSystems Suppliers Awards Dinner in Wichita, Kansas.
“Spirit cannot be successful without world-class partners,” said Tom Gentile, Spirit president and chief executive officer. “We are proud to recognize these suppliers for sharing our passion in delivering high-quality products on time. We look forward to collaborating with them in the future as we continue to meet our customers’ delivery needs and rate requirements.”
Spirit AeroSystems Supply Chain Management awards the honorees to recognize suppliers that have achieved superior performance, with nominations typically coming from the company’s procurement groups. Suppliers like GKN Aerospace can be nominated for offering outstanding support, expediting deliveries, or providing weekend assistance.
“We work very hard to provide an uncompromising class of service and products to our customers,” said Todd Gardner, site leader at GKN Aerospace’s Wellington, Kansas, facility. “It’s a great honor to receive this recognition from Spirit AeroSystems, and it is certainly a testament to the talented and dedicated employees we have here in Wellington.”
