Today, Intel announced the recipients of the 2023 Intel EPIC Supplier Program awards, which recognize suppliers that exemplify Intel’s standard of excellence. Intel is committed to expanding global supply capacity, delivering leadership products and enabling Intel Foundry Services. Suppliers are critical to furthering Intel’s technology roadmap and enhancing supply chain resilience for its customers. These award-winning suppliers exemplify a world-class commitment to continuous improvement and performance excellence.
“We are executing our IDM 2.0 strategy as a result of our collaboration with our supplier ecosystem,” said Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger. “The innovations we create together are foundational to the semiconductor industry and power our societies’ digital aspirations. I want to personally thank all our 2023 Intel EPIC Award winners for their significant contributions across all aspects of supply chain excellence.”
Keyvan Esfarjani, chief global operations officer at Intel, said, “The 2023 Intel EPIC Award winners align with Intel values and embody a model for excellence in continuous quality improvement. These award-winning companies have significantly contributed to Intel and are widely recognized as industry leaders worldwide. Their long-standing commitment to safety, quality, affordability, innovation, diversity and inclusion, and collaboration serves as a global benchmark for others to follow.”
Intel founded its recognition program in 1987 to establish an objective system for measuring and improving quality, innovation and performance. Today, the awards recognize companies for “EPIC” performance: excellence, partnership, inclusion and continuous quality improvement.
The Intel EPIC Supplier Program has three award levels: The Outstanding Supplier Award recognizes the highest performance across all measures, the Distinguished Supplier Award recognizes companies where performance consistently exceeds expectations, and the Valued Supplier Award recognizes companies that are steadily improving across all program criteria and exceeding expectations in at least one critical area.
