AT&T Honors Suppliers for Outstanding Performance

Dallas, Texas, April 17, 2012

AT&T* today announced the AT&T Supplier Award winners, who are being recognized for their outstanding performance and service to AT&T affiliates during the past year.

The AT&T Supplier Award program annually honors suppliers who provide products or services that support AT&T operations for their contributions across a broad scope of selection criteria, including supplier diversity results, creative cost management solutions, teamwork, customer service, product/service performance and sustainability.

“Our suppliers play a vital role in helping us deliver the great products and services that our customers have come to expect from AT&T,” said Tim Harden, president of AT&T Supply Chain and Fleet Operations. “We acknowledge our most strategic suppliers by awarding those that have stood out in providing value and exceeding expectations with the AT&T Supplier Award.”

This year, AT&T is recognizing six suppliers that went above and beyond in providing AT&T with better products, superior services, enhanced cost structures or best-in-class approaches that contributed to the company’s success during the past year.

AT&T uses more than 5,000 companies as major suppliers for materials and services. As part of the annual program, the company took out a half-page ad in today’s edition of The Wall Street Journal to publicly thank the selected companies.
