Chomerics Division Honored with Boeing Award

Chomerics Division Honored with Boeing Award, Boeing Supplier of the Year AwardsWe’re thrilled to announce that Parker Hannifin Chomerics Division was presented with Boeing’s Advocacy Award at the 2016 Boeing Supplier of the Year Awards. Accepting the award were Scott Gunderson, global aerospace/defense market manager and Brian Mahoney, global business unit manager both of Chomerics Division.

Chomerics Division received the award due to its superior performance in supporting the renewal of the US Export-Import (EXIM) Bank. A former Navy P-3C and T-45C pilot, Gunderson spoke to key congressional representatives about the need for the EXIM Bank, addressing a large audience of Boeing and supplier representatives, including Boeing Chairman, CEO, and President Dennis Muilenburg. The bank, formed to help third-world countries obtain low-cost loans to purchase American goods like airplanes, was later approved by congressional vote. Chomerics supplies Boeing with EMI shielding gaskets and other technologies.

Tim Keating, senior vice president of government operations for Boeing, publicly recognized and praised Parker Chomerics and Gunderson at the event.

“We at Chomerics are honored to receive this recognition by Boeing. It’s an acknowledgement of the outstanding quality of work by the Parker Chomerics team and reflects our ongoing commitment to excellence in serving our customers.” David P. Hill, global general manager, Parker Chomerics.

The influence of suppliers like Chomerics Division engaging with policy makers can foster awareness that provides multiple benefits.
