Murata scoops Platinum Supplier award from TTI


Hoofddorp, Netherlands: Murata has been awarded the Platinum level in TTI's Supplier Excellence awards for the second consecutive year. The award recognises outstanding performance in a number of tightly-measured categories throughout 2009.

“Murata continue to work with TTI across all functions of the business to continuously improve our total quality and reduce costs,” comments Glyn Dennehy, Senior Vice President and General Manager Europe at TTI. “It is the enthusiasm of their people and particularly the Senior Management toward the program that drives the consistency of their performance.”

Terry Churcher, President of Murata EMEA, adds: “Murata has been pleased to contribute to, and benefit from, TTI's success during our long relationship. We are particularly proud to have achieved the coveted Platinum Level Supplier recognition award for a second consecutive year. Such an achievement has been made despite the fact that 2009 has been a year full of challenges, and is only possible because of the strong mutual management commitment of TTI and Murata, the hard work of both our teams and imaginative marketing programs. Another reason for our success is that we maintain very close relationships with our mutual customers to ensure that they receive the very best service from our combined organisations.”
