SAMSUNG Receives Sun Microsystems' Supplier Of The Year Award

Seoul Korea, October 2, 2003 - SAMSUNG Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced semiconductor memory technology, today received Sun Microsystems, Inc.’s prestigious Supplier of the Year Award. The award recognizes companies that have made an outstanding contribution to Sun’s ability to deliver superior quality and service to customers. SAMSUNG, which received the global award based on its “second to none” supply efforts, was measured on a combination of its technology, quality, cost and supply. SAMSUNG was selected from Sun’s entire vendor base, which is indicative of the value placed on this award.
Since Sun initiated its awards program over a decade ago, Samsung’s semiconductor division is the only company to have been named Supplier of the Year twice. In total, SAMSUNG has been named among the winners in the awards program seven times.
"Over the past two decades, SAMSUNG has enjoyed a tremendously successful business relationship with Sun Microsystems,” said Y.H. Park, SAMSUNG’s Senior Vice President Memory Sales. “Together we have challenged the boundaries of high-performance computing and memory technology. Sun's breakthrough supply chain management and e-commerce initiatives have helped SAMSUNG create new business practices. We are proud and privileged to have been awarded this honor and to continue to be Sun's most frequently recognized supplier."
"Sun's Supplier Performance Awards recognize industry leading suppliers
for significant contributions to Sun products and services that meet
and exceed customer expectations for value, performance, quality,
lead time and advanced technology," said Eugene McCabe, Sun Microsystems’ Senior Vice President, Worldwide Operations. "We congratulate SAMSUNG for attaining our high performance and high quality standards leading to these awards."
SAMSUNG supplies Sun with memory products including advanced DRAM and SRAM devices as well as state-of-the-art custom memory solutions for Sun’s high-performance servers, workstations and storage systems. The supplier relationship between the two companies spans two decades and stands as testimony to Sun’s confidence in SAMSUNG.
