Skanska USA, an AGC member in multiple locations, was the recipient of a Boeing Supplier of the Year award for its exceptional performance and contributions to Boeing’s overall success during 2012. The construction firm was one of 16 companies and one university to receive a Supplier of the Year award, presented April 18 during a ceremony at the San Diego Convention Center. 

Selected from a pool of Boeing suppliers in more than 50 countries, Skanska has been performing construction work for Boeing since 1962. It recently completed work on Boeing’s Everett Delivery Center and has several projects under way on Boeing’s campuses throughout the Puget Sound region.

The Boeing global supply chain is among the most geographically dispersed in manufacturing. The company annually purchases more than $50 billion in goods and services from more than 23,000 suppliers that employ more than 1.2 million people around the world. 

"These partners are critical to helping Boeing provide our customers the most affordable, highest quality products and services possible," said Jack House, leader of Boeing’s Supplier Management function. He added that Boeing must have a global supply chain that is capable of recognizing and reducing risk, while demonstrating a strong commitment to customer service and consistent performance excellence. 

The selection of the winning suppliers is based on statistical measurements of quality, on-time delivery, post-delivery support, cost and their ability to anticipate and respond to changing customer requirements. 
Skanska was honored in the Leaders Choice Alliance category. 

"On all our projects, we focus on aligning our work with the client’s business needs," said Skanska Senior Vice President Mark Howell, who leads Skanska’s account team for Boeing. "This recognition validates that approach and helps us refocus on continuing to deliver exceptional work for Boeing."
