October 3, 2007

WALTHAM, MA-Olympus NDT, provider of nondestructive testing solutions, has recently been honored by the Defense Supply Center Richmond (DSCR) as one of the U.S. government’s best suppliers at an Automated Best Value System award ceremony. Olympus NDT accepted the Gold Medal for 2006 from Rear Admiral Mark F. Heinrich, the commander of the supply center.

Firms that qualify as Automated Best Value System medalists have met stringent quality and delivery requirements established by the Defense Logistics Agency. The Automated Best Value computerized system collects a vendor’s past performance data and translates it into a numeric score ranging from 0 to 100. To qualify for a Gold Medal, a contractor must have a score of 100.

DSCR is the Defense Logistics Agency’s aviation supply and demand chain manager serving within the Department of Defense as a primary source of supply for more than 1.2 million repair parts and supply items. The center supports the U.S. military as well as the Postal Service, NASA and the Forestry Service.
