Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components, has announced that the company has earned each of the award categories of the highly-respected TTI 2021 Supplier Excellence Awards. TTI announced the awards during its virtual ceremony held on May 4.
Taking the top honors, Bourns is the first supplier to earn the TTI Diamond Award in all three of TTI’s operating regions – Americas, Europe/Middle East/Africa, and Asia. Bourns also earned the Global Operations Excellence Award in 2021 for a record seventh year out of eleven years it has been awarded and the Platinum Level Supplier Excellence Award in the Americas for the fourteenth straight year. Bourns also earned the 2021 Platinum Level Supplier Excellence Awards in EMEA and in Asia.
TTI, Inc. initiated the Global Operations Excellence Award to honor the supplier who scores the highest total points globally from a rigorous set of performance criteria as determined in each of TTI’s three operating regions. The Platinum Level Supplier Excellence Awards are given in each of TTI’s three operating regions for sustaining a high level of performance for more than five consecutive years. The TTI Diamond Awards are given each year to the supplier with the highest overall point achievement in each of TTI’s three operating regions.
“To sweep all of the TTI Supplier Excellence Awards is truly a monumental accomplishment by Bourns! We congratulate the Company for continuing to raise their commitment to delivering exceptional customer service and continuous process improvements across their global operations,” said Melanie Pizzey, TTI Vice President Global Business Operations. “We set the bar pretty high in terms of performance criteria and Bourns met every challenge. It is especially meaningful to recognize Bourns in their 75th anniversary year. We very much appreciate the efforts of the entire Bourns team for their extraordinary worldwide support especially during this period of heavy demand and supply chain challenges.”
“My parents, Marlan and Rosemary Bourns, established our core values to provide our customers with excellent quality and responsive service when they started Bourns Laboratories in their garage in Pasadena, California 75 years ago,” said Gordon Bourns, Chairman and CEO of Bourns, Inc. “Three years ago, I challenged the Bourns Team to earn all three of the TTI Diamond Awards, to make Bourns a better supplier for all our customers worldwide. I am grateful for the contributions that every Bourns Team Member has made to earn this most prestigious set of industry awards by achieving the highest levels of supplier excellence based on the strict TTI criteria. During our thirty-eight year partnership, TTI has played a key role in helping Bourns build its competitive leadership.
