GE recently honored Union Pacific Railroad for its work moving wind energy components with GE's Excellence in Customer Centricity Award through GE's Supplier Excellence Award program, which recognizes excellence in compliance, quality, lean, direct material productivity, growth and customer centricity.
The award is given to a supplier that consistently meets all sourcing critical to quality and price, delivery quality, and demonstrates flexibility and responsiveness to GE and GE's customers.
In conjunction with the award, GE will donate a mural on Union Pacific's behalf at Children's Hospital and Medical Center of Omaha, which provides care to more than 250,000 children annually from a five-state region and beyond. Volunteers from the non-profit organization, Foundation for Hospital Art, will paint the mural.
GE Energy has been presenting its Supplier Excellence Awards for more than 10 years. This year's award winners were chosen from a field of 60 U.S. and European contenders, which were nominated by GE global commodity leaders and supplier quality leaders.
