2009 | GE Honors MFG with Supplier Excellence Award
Carl LaFrance, MFG’s corporate wind energy champion, accepted the prestigious GE “Excellence in Lean” award on behalf of the company. The awards ceremony was held in conjunction with GE Energy’s supplier conference. This award is presented yearly to one selected supplier for outstanding performance in compliance, quality, lean, direct material productivity, growth and customer-centricity.
“MFG has consistently demonstrated a commitment to excellence”, said Jody Markpooulos, vice president of global sourcing, GE Energy. “GE’s Excellence in Lean award recognizes the company’s dedication to integrity, strong values and quality performance.”
Award honorees were selected from a field of 60 US and European contenders nominated by GE global commodity leaders and supplier quality leaders. Applications were vetted through a rigorous selection process by GE Energy’s senior sourcing leadership team, and final decisions were based on quantitative metrics and subjective opinion tied to historical relations.
