ITW Heartland Business Unit Receives Boeing Supplier Distinction

In its most recent Supplier Performance Report, Boeing granted Spiroid a “Gold” Composite Rating. The “Gold” Composite Rating is Boeing’s highest distinction and can only be achieved by earning “Gold” status in both “Quality” and “Delivery” performance metrics. To earn this distinction, Spiroid performed at 100% quality and on-time delivery from April 1, 2010 thru April 1, 2011. Spiroid is a Business Unit of ITW Heartland that specializes in precision right angle and inline gearing for aerospace, robotics, defense and medical applications.

“We are extremely proud of this distinction,” says Brian Baustian, General Manager of ITW Heartland. “It is an honor and a testament to our people that a company like Boeing recognizes us in this way. We will continue to strive for this level of performance for Boeing, as well as our other partners.”
