SAN DIEGO, CA-Quality Controlled Manufacturing Inc. (QCMI), manufacturer of machined components and assemblies, has received Supplier Gold status from United Technologies Corp. (UTC), provider of products and services to the building and aerospace industries, and its subsidiary Hamilton Sundstrand, supplier of aerospace and industrial products.

UTC's Supplier Gold status recognizes suppliers for exceptional performance for at least 12 consecutive months. For a UTC supplier to be awarded Supplier Gold status, it must meet stringent requirements for quality, delivery, lean practices and customer satisfaction.

In achieving UTC Supplier Gold status, QCMI joins a group from multiple industries who supply UTC businesses.

"Supplier Gold is a tremendous privilege and responsibility," says Bob Grande, QCMI president and chief executive officer. "It's crucial we continue to use lean principles and Six Sigma methods to retain Supplier Gold status. Our ongoing focus is on achieving maximum value by eliminating waste in all processes while reducing cycle times to meet market demands."

"Having QCMI achieve Supplier Gold is a great demonstration of teamwork between UTC and QCMI to provide outstanding supply chain performance to our valuable customers," says Dennis Mayhew, Hamilton Sundstrand supply chain commodity manager. "Congratulations to everyone at QCMI for their effort in meeting and sustaining such high levels of customer service."
