DALLAS, TX – The Boeing Company has named King Aerospace the 2019 Boeing Supplier of the Year in its Collaboration category.
“It’s a blessing and an honor that our company was recognized for our passion and commitment to serve Boeing, their customers and our nation,” says Jarid King, president, King Aerospace. “We look forward to a positive working relationship for generations to come.”
King Aerospace has a long-lasting relationship with Boeing including recent refurbishments of Boeing aircraft at its facilities in Ardmore, OK., and has been a Boeing partner throughout 2019 as part of the Department of Defense (DOD) Mentor Protégé Program, which pairs large prime contractors with smaller subcontractors. The 12-month program spanned a variety of business improvement training sessions, guided by the kaizen continuous-improvement philosophy.
“We are most thankful that through our service to Boeing, we are able to serve God, Country and family as we strive to make a positive difference in the lives of others,” says Jerry King, chairman and founder, King Aerospace. “We really listen to our customers’ needs and then work together very openly and honestly. That makes all the difference.”
