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.
