Invotec Group Ltd, the leading European PCB manufacturer to the aerospace and defence industries, is delighted to announce that it has won a Bronze Award from its client MBDA missile systems for commendable levels of achievement against MBDA performance and excellence expectations for 2012.

In order to identify and recognise its best-performing suppliers, MBDA has introduced a new a supplier recognition process based on five key criteria – delivery, quality, commercial, technical (including Innovation) and supply chain management – across all of which Invotec scored highly.

The award was accepted on behalf of Invotec Group by Managing Director Tim Tatton who commented: “Receiving this award is particularly gratifying for us as it recognises the commitment we have to working closely with MBDA and aligning our operations to their business needs. It also reflects the achievements we have made in the supply chains for the twenty-first century (SC21) programme which is designed to improve supply chain performance within the UK aerospace, defence, security and space industries”.

Paul Morris, Category Manager at MBDA, added: “Invotec was selected as a preferred supplier to MBDA UK in 2011 after an extensive exercise which considered the pre-existing model of how we were working with suppliers and our longer term needs in terms of both technology and relationship. This resulted in what was for MBDA a new style of relationship and today the benefits of this are recognised. We have seen a strong commitment from Invotec in supporting the longer term business needs of MBDA in terms of improvement in joint working practices, processes and efficiencies. Specifically we have seen a commitment to continuous improvement which has manifested itself through a level of performance which is creditable in comparison with their peer group”.
