  • Diamond certification granted to suppliers who demonstrated outstanding operational performance and competitiveness in 2019

Bombardier awarded five of its distinguished aerospace suppliers with the prestigious Diamond certification last month during a virtual Diamond Supplier Award Ceremony. The suppliers honoured at this year’s ceremony were recognized for their excellence in operational performance standards, as well as for their commitment to continuous improvement in 2019.

“Our suppliers are the key to our success, and they are at the heart of helping us to deliver the industry’s finest products,” said Shauna Gamble, Chief Procurement Officer, Bombardier Aviation. “The Diamond Supplier program motivates the most engaged and efficient professionals in the industry to work together to meet Bombardier’s objectives and continue to exceed customer expectations.”

The world-class performance and competitiveness of Bombardier aircraft, and the company’s track record of excellence and innovation, are achieved with the help of strong collaboration with suppliers, and by building rewarding partnerships based on trust and respect.
