newsrelease

AT&T* today announced the 2010 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.

“AT&T’s Supplier Award program acknowledges the contribution of its strategic suppliers by highlighting those who have added significant value to AT&T, and who have far exceeded expectations in supplier relations,” said Tim Harden, president of AT&T Supply Chain and Fleet Operations.

“These suppliers play a vital role in helping AT&T deliver the services, value and innovation necessary to serve our residential and business customers and to maintain our company’s leadership position in today’s competitive and dynamic global marketplace.”

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.
