Helping the World’s Best Get Even Better
Intel is on a constant quest to improve our quality, service, and performance. In 1987, under the leadership of Intel co-founder, Andy Grove, we extended our quality improvement methods to a small group of Intel suppliers that wanted to improve along with us.
Over the decades, the program has grown into a comprehensive road map with individual improvement plans for each supplier and quantitative measurements of their success across several vectors of performance.
Only a select group of suppliers is invited to join the EPIC program. Out of the thousands of companies that supply Intel with raw materials, equipment, finished goods, and professional services in a given year, there are only a few hundred in the program.
