PARIS, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell Aerospace Electronics Systems has
been recognized by airplane manufacturer Airbus as a top-10 supplier in the
company's annual rankings. Airbus recognized its top ten systems suppliers
during ceremonies at the Paris Air Show today. Honeywell Aerospace
Electronics Systems was one of four U.S.-based companies recognized by
airlines for their product quality and support.
Honeywell's Aerospace Electronics Systems division, which is headquartered
in Phoenix, Az., produces electronic systems for many Airbus aircraft types,
including the A300, A310, A318, A319, A320, A321 and the A340. The company
will also produce systems for the A380, the flagship of the 21st century.
Adrian Paull, Vice President of customer and project support for Honeywell
Aerospace accepted the award in Paris on behalf of the company.
"The Airbus supplier rating is one of the most comprehensive ratings done
within this industry and we are delighted to have been recognized by Airbus,"
said Paull. Airbus analyzes customer feedback and supplier performance
reports to develop the annual ranking. Supplier performance is measured by
Airbus and its customer airlines, and results are defined by product and
service performance, as well as cost management. This year, 40 suppliers were
rated, and more than 80 airlines worldwide participated in the survey.
"Honeywell Aerospace Electronics Systems is a critical Avionics supplier
to Airbus and has consistently provided outstanding support to our customers,"
said Allan McArtor, Chairman-Airbus North America. "We feel that Honeywell
provides leadership and innovation in their product line and aftermarket
customer support. We are proud to be partners with the Honeywell and know
that their dedication to the Aerospace community is their primary mission."
Each new Airbus order means new business for American companies. In 2004
alone, Airbus spent nearly $7 billion with suppliers in more than 40 U.S.
states. Using a U.S. Department of Commerce model, that dollar amount
translates into Airbus support of more than 140,000 American jobs.
A leading aircraft manufacturer with the most modern and comprehensive
product line on the market, Airbus is a global company with design and
manufacturing facilities in France, Germany, the UK, and Spain as well as
subsidiaries in the U.S., China and Japan. Airbus is an EADS joint company
with BAE Systems.
