Ducommun Incorporated today reported it has been named a Partner-level supplier for 2014 in the John Deere Achieving Excellence Program. This is the third consecutive year Ducommun has earned this recognition.
The Partner-level status is Deere & Company’s highest supplier rating. Ducommun provides John Deere Electronic Solutions with complex, high-reliability printed circuit board assemblies and electronic systems used in equipment for the agricultural industry.
"We’re proud of our performance and honored by the John Deere team. Our goal is to continue to grow our relationship with John Deere as a supplier of choice,” said Anthony J. Reardon, chairman and chief executive officer.
Ducommun was selected as a Partner-level supplier for its dedication to providing products and service of outstanding quality as well as its commitment to continuous improvement.
Suppliers who participate in the Achieving Excellence program are evaluated annually in several key performance categories, including quality, cost management, delivery, technical support and wavelength, which is a measure of responsiveness. John Deere Supply Management created the program in 1991 to provide a supplier evaluation and feedback process that promotes continuous improvement.
