TenCate Advanced Composites receives Silver Boeing supplier performance award

This press release was issued as TenCate Advanced Composites, prior to our acquisition by Toray Indutries and name change to Toray Advanced Composites in 2019.

TenCate Advanced Composites announces that it has received a 2013 Boeing Performance Excellence Award. The Boeing Company issues the award annually to recognize suppliers who have achieved superior performance. As key supplier of high purity radome composites materials, TenCate maintained a Silver composite performance rating for quality and delivery each month of the 12-month performance period, from 1 October 2012, to 30 September 2013.

This year, Boeing recognized 582 suppliers who achieved either a Gold or Silver level Boeing Performance Excellence Award. TenCate is one of only 459 suppliers to receive the Silver level of recognition. Paul Draghi, Senior VP of Operations states: “This recognition represents our second year in a row and is especially important as it recognizes our commitment to on-time delivery and quality across the materials we supply to Boeing”.

TenCate supplies low dielectric radome prepregs to the Boeing 787 and EA-18 Growler programs, and TenCate Cetex® thermoplastics composites for a variety of Boeing aircraft. TenCate through its wholly owned subsidiary CCS Composites also fabricates compression molded parts for Boeing’s V-22 Osprey helicopter, the F-18 program and for Boeing 737, 747 and 787 commercial aircraft.
