Silcotec quality put under the microscope by FEI

Silcotec Europe have received a fourth supplier award nomination from world leading high performance electron microscopy manufacturer FEI.

Silcotec Europe have been a preferred supplier to FEI since 2009.

In 2010 they were nominated as ‘Best New Supplier’, in 2012 for “Best Overall Quality’, and again in 2013 for the same award. In each instance Silcotec Europe emerged as winner after nomination. The company has been delighted to be nominated this year in the category of “Best Performance – Operational Excellence’.

Group Operations Manager, Paul Bullock and Key Account Manager, Enda Bonner travel to Hillsboro, Oregon in late January for the awards ceremony.

Bullock commented: “We are proud of our relationship with FEI. They are a world class company with, as you would expect, a number of world class supply partners. Simply to be nominated is a huge honour.”

FEI’s Operational Excellence award is based on long term measurement of both quality and on-time delivery.

Silcotec Europe has achieved a 99.8% quality score and 96.8% on-time delivery across the period with delivery measured globally including Netherlands, Czech Republic and USA combined.

Key Account Manager, Enda Bonner noted: “This nomination is a huge vote of support for the whole Silcotec Europe team especially those in our Centre of Manufacturing Excellence in Komarno. We would love to be picking up the award on behalf of all of them. This award is all about our teams focus on manufacturing and service excellence – even to get shortlisted is a huge accolade”
