Munters Corp. was one of 10 suppliers to receive Intel Corp.’s Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement Award.

The award, which is Intel’s highest honor for suppliers, recognizes a commitment to quality and exceptional performance that helps Intel realize its goals. In 2009, Munters provided abatement equipment deemed vital to Intel’s success.

“We at Munters are proud to again receive this most prestigious SCQI award from Intel.  As a leading provider of energy-efficient air treatment solutions for demanding applications, our continuous improvement proceeds within the long-term customer partnerships with Intel and other customers,” said Lars Engstrom, CEO of Munters Group.

This is the second-straight year that Munters has received the award from Intel. To qualify for the award, suppliers must score at least 95 percent on a report card that assesses performance and ability to meet cost, quality, availability, delivery, technology and customer satisfaction goals. Munters said suppliers must also achieve 90 percent or greater on a challenging improvement plan and demonstrate solid quality and business systems.

“Munters has been a valuable partner to Intel for over a decade,” said Tom Brady, corporate environmental manager for Intel. “We congratulate them for their achievement and look forward to their continued support.”
