Tektronix, Inc. Receives Intel’s Preferred Quality Supplier Award


BEAVERTON, Oregon – Tektronix, Inc. has received Intel Corporation’s Preferred Quality Supplier (PQS) award recognizing their significant contributions to Intel in 2008. Tektronix supplies Intel with validation test equipment, deemed essential to Intel’s success. Tektronix and 25 additional suppliers are recognized as 2008 PQS award winners.

“We are honored to receive the Preferred Quality Supplier award from Intel for the third consecutive year,” said Jim Lico, president of Tektronix, Inc. “We see this award as a validation of our continued commitment to Intel’s success. At Tektronix, we make it a priority to listen to our customers, understand their requirements, and deliver on those requirements, with a goal of exceeding expectations.”

The PQS award is part of Intel’s Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement (SCQI) program that encourages suppliers to strive for excellence and continuous improvement. To qualify for PQS status, suppliers must score 80 percent on a report card that assesses performance and ability to meet cost, quality, availability, delivery, technology and responsiveness goals. Suppliers must also manage and deliver on a challenging improvement plan and a quality/business systems assessment. Furthermore, the 2008 awardees had to demonstrate basic compliance to the Electronic Industry Code of Conduct and Intel’s Green Sustainability Program.

Celebrations will be held in Tokyo, Japan and Santa Clara, California during the month of March 2009 to honor the PQS award winners. In addition, there will be an online advertisement launch and acknowledgement on Intel’s website.
