The Boeing Co. has recognized Michelin Group’s Aircraft Tire Division as Supplier of the Year in the Electronics/Hydraulics/Mechanical category.
Michelin was honored with 13 other companies and one university during a ceremony last week in Chantilly, Virginia, for its distinguished work with Boeing.
“Our business teams have worked very hard to establish a spirit of mutual partnership with our associates at Boeing, which has resulted in a strong and growing relationship between our companies,” Frank Moreau, director of Michelin Group's aircraft tire division, said. “As the awards are based on quality, on-time delivery, post-delivery support and affordability goals, and demonstrating the ability to anticipate and respond to changing requirements, we are proud to receive this award.”
Since 1995, Boeing has integrated and extended the radial technology originally developed by Michelin for the 777 into its entire long-range fleet.
