As part of the Supplier Engagement Forum at the Bombardier Mirabel site in Canada, the company honoured the 13 most strategically important suppliers in the final assembly of the Bombardier CRJ for their ongoing commitment. The leading suppliers received awards in the Best Quality lmprovement, Best Ontime Delivery lmprovement and Best Overall Performance categories.
Alexander Toussaint, CEO of RUAG Aerostructures, is delighted about the award: "The constant dedication of all the business areas meant we could significantly improve our delivery quality in particular, and Bombardier was extremely impressed."
The purpose of the Bombardier Supplier Engagement Forum is to directly address customer feedback and agree binding improvement goals with suppliers. The forum was held for the first time in March 2015. At the following event on 6 October 2015, Bombardier honoured the improvements made by suppliers over the past six months with the aforementioned three awards.
