Tyco Adhesives, Norwood, Mass., presented its prestigious Annual Supplier of the Year Award to National Starch and Chemical Co. last August in Bridgewater, N.J. Tyco selected National Starch for ongoing excellence in quality, cost and service, and for the company's commitment to excellence and continuous improvement. These have resulted in a successful partnership with Tyco and have allowed the company to respond to market needs more effectively.

The support of National Starch and other suppliers has enabled Tyco Adhesives to grow organically at a remarkable pace despite the stagnant U.S. economy. "It wasn't an easy decision to select National Starch and Chemical from a group of great suppliers, but it was the clear choice," said Terri M. Pitcher, vice president, Operations, Tyco Adhesives. "National Starch and Chemical did well on the scorecard and has helped us increase our business and improve on product cost," Pitcher added.

Tyco Adhesives explained all of its business objectives to its key suppliers and asked them to become more of a partner. National Starch brought high value to Tyco by introducing best-production practices and being a supportive partner.

Tyco Adhesives is a world leader in the manufacture of adhesive and corrosion-protection products. National Starch and Chemical Co., a member of the ICI Group, is a worldwide manufacturer of adhesives, specialty polymers, electronic and engineering materials, natural polymers, and advanced ingredients.
