GEORGIA, VT, June 1, 2015) – Liquid Measurement Systems, Inc. (LMS) today announced that it has received a 2014 Boeing Performance Excellence Award. The Boeing Company issues the award annually to recognize suppliers who have achieved superior performance in consistent quality manufacturing and on-time delivery.
LMS maintained a Gold/Silver composite performance rating for each month of the 12-month performance period, from Oct. 1, 2013, to Sept. 30, 2014.
“In fact,” says Liquid Measurement Systems (LMS) President George Lamphere, “as of 31 March, we have achieved 44 consecutive months of straight on-time deliveries to Boeing, and 20 months without a warranty return. It’s a record we’re proud of.”
This year, Boeing recognized 548 suppliers who achieved either a Gold or Silver level Boeing Performance Excellence Award. LMS is one of only 429 suppliers to receive the Silver level of recognition.
Since 2008, LMS has been a direct supplier of fuel gauging systems for Boeing’s CH-47F Chinook helicopter, and has recently entered production as a direct supplier to the Apache AH-64 helicopter. LMS, in partnership with Robertson Fuel Systems as RFS/LMS, LLC, also provides the complete fuel system for the Boeing-Sikorsky SB>1 Defiant TM.
LMS President George Lamphere says, “LMS has developed a system of repeatable, scalable, robust processes, from supply chain management, to inventory control, to lean manufacturing and quality assurance, which enable us to achieve excellence — every day, day after day, month after month. That’s what the Boeing Performance Excellence Award is all about.”
