Nordson ASYMTEK was acknowledged for its significant contributions, providing Intel with dispense equipment deemed essential to its success.

“Nordson ASYMTEK is honored to have received this prestigious award. It reinforces our commitment to quality, continuous improvement and customer satisfaction,” said John P.

Intel appreciates Asymtek’s commitment, and we look forward to a successful 2010.”

The PQS award is part of Intel’s Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement (SCQI) program that encourages suppliers to strive for excellence and continuous improvement. To qualify for PQS status, suppliers must score 80% on a report card that assesses performance and ability to meet cost, quality, availability, delivery, technology, and customer satisfaction goals. Suppliers must also achieve 80% or higher on a challenging improvement plan and demonstrate solid quality and business systems. Furthermore, the 2009 awardees demonstrated compliance to the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition Code of Conduct and Intel’s Environmental Social Governance Program.

Celebrations to honor the PQS award winners will be held in conjunction with Intel’s Supplier Day events in Tokyo, Japan, and Anaheim, CA, during the month of March. In addition, an announcement will run in the March 31 U.S. edition and April 1 European and Asian editions of The Wall Street Journal, with acknowledgement on Intel’s corporate Web site, www.intel.com.
