Cessna Announces 2009 Supplier STAR Award Winners
May 24, 2010

Cessna Aircraft Company, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, announced its 2009 STARS award to 21 suppliers, including two - Aerospace Optics, Inc., located in Fort Worth, Texas, and O2 Corporation, located in Wichita, Kan. - that obtained the gold level for outstanding performance excellence.

The award is part of a Supplier Tracking and Rating System called STARS, which is a Supply Chain Management scorecard that measures direct material suppliers on a 12-month rolling average in the areas of quality, reliability, schedule and cost. Suppliers with a rating of one in all categories are a gold level and those rated two are at a silver level.

“The STARS award winners demonstrate the hard work and dedication we value in our supply chain. Their exceptional levels of performance are crucial to the success of our company as well as their own,” said Ryan Doerksen, Cessna’s director of strategic sourcing.

Suppliers that meet the performance expectations of Cessna’s customers are given additional opportunities for new programs. This performance recognition program is supporting Cessna’s effort of being the “customer of choice” for its suppliers.
