Spirit AeroSystems, Inc. received a Boeing Excellence in Advocacy Award for 2017. The Boeing Company issues the award annually to recognize suppliers who have achieved superior performance in government outreach activities to help government policymakers better understand aerospace issues and promote legislation that support aerospace companies.
Boeing suppliers are uniquely qualified to speak on behalf of key business issues that strengthen awareness among community leaders, elected officials and decision makers.
“With ever-growing global competition, lending our collective voice to advance shared interests is an integral part of our jobs,” said Jenette Ramos, senior vice president, Supply Chain & Operations. “Boeing and suppliers like Spirit have shown – and will continue to demonstrate – that together, we have the ability to shape aerospace policy, and positively impact the economy, employment and communities.”
The Boeing Company and its supplier network encourage policy awareness in support of the aerospace industry and manufacturing businesses across the U.S.
