Intel Announces 2022 EPIC Supplier Program Award Recipients

Program recognizes supplier partners that exemplify Intel’s standard of excellence.

Today, Intel announced the recipients of the 2022 Intel EPIC Supplier Program awards, which recognizes supplier partners that exemplify Intel’s standard of excellence. Intel is committed to expanding global supply capacity, delivering leadership products and enabling Intel Foundry Services. Supplier partners are critical to enabling Intel’s technology roadmap and enhancing supply chain resilience for its customers. These award-winning suppliers are trusted partners that exemplify world-class commitment to continuous improvement and performance excellence.

“The 2022 Intel EPIC program award recipients are truly an exceptional group of companies, pursuing the highest standards of excellence, aligned to Intel values. The award-winning companies have made significant contributions to Intel and the industry in very challenging times,” said Keyvan Esfarjani, executive vice president and chief global operations officer at Intel. “Their long-standing commitment to quality, diversity and inclusion, continuous innovation, and collaboration toward operational excellence results makes them world-class partners.”

CEO Pat Gelsinger said: “Our supplier partnerships are paramount to our ability to advance progress toward meeting the world’s insatiable appetite for semiconductors. With their continued partnership, pursuit of continuous improvement, flawless execution and intrepid innovation, we continue to execute on our IDM 2.0 strategy at a torrid pace. Congratulations to the winners of this year’s Intel’s EPIC Supplier Program.”

Intel founded its recognition program in 1987 to establish an objective system for measuring and improving quality, innovation and performance. Previously named the Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement Program, Intel renamed the program in 2021 to expand the award criteria and recognize companies for “EPIC” performance:  excellence, partnership, inclusion and continuous 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.
