Mini-Circuits Receives 4-Star Supplier Excellence Award from Raytheon

Mini-Circuits has received a 4-Star Supplier Excellence Award for the 10th consecutive year from longtime customer Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS).

Raytheon’s Integrated Defense Systems business instituted the annual Supplier Excellence Awards program to recognize suppliers who have provided outstanding service and partnership in exceeding customer requirements. Award candidates are judged on certain criteria, including overall quality and on-time delivery. Mini-Circuits was one of 86 companies recognized by Raytheon’s Integrated Defense Systems business for 4-Star honours.

Raytheon had planned to celebrate the 2020 award winners at its annual Supplier Excellence Conference in Boston but cancelled the conference to protect the health and well-being of its employees, customers and business partners during the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of the event, Raytheon is shipping awards directly to recipients.

In 2019, Mini-Circuits supported Raytheon with 1,250 different models for production, development, and prototyping. The total marked a 22% increase in product support from 2018.

Erick Olsen, Global Marketing Manager for Aerospace and Defense at Mini-Circuits commented that currently, Mini-Circuits supports 64 programs and 579 unique models across 14 Raytheon locations in the U.S. and U.K. Olsen reiterated Mini-Circuits’ end-of-life policy as a key value-add for global customers such as Raytheon.
