"We are deeply appreciative to again receive recognition as a Preferred Quality Supplier by Intel. Amkor and Intel have worked together for 17 years, and we continue to collaborate on developing advanced packaging solutions for a broad range of programs supporting Intel's computing, communications and networking businesses," said John Boruch, Amkor's president. "This award is a tribute to Amkor's 20,000 employees, who are committed to providing the highest quality service to our customers."
"Amkor's receipt of the Preferred Quality Supplier award for 2002 is indicative of the high level of quality and service they provided to Intel during the course of this past year," said Mark Kaltenbach, director, Intel ATMO. "Having last received the PQS award in 1998, we look forward to Amkor's continued support of Intel quality improvement goals and initiatives in 2003."
The PQS awards are part of Intel's Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement (SCQI) process that encourages suppliers to strive for excellence and continuous improvement. To qualify for PQS status, suppliers must score 80 percent on a report card that assesses performance and ability to meet cost, quality, availability, delivery, technology and responsiveness goals. Suppliers must also manage and deliver on a challenging improvement plan and a quality systems assessment.
Intel, the world's largest chip maker, is also a leading manufacturer of computer, networking and communications products. Additional information about Intel is available at www.intel.com/pressroom.
