RICHMOND, VA. (June 11, 2008) — The U.S. military — through its Defense Supply Center Richmond — has recognized Michelin Aircraft Tire Co. as a top government supplier with a Best Value Medal Award.
Brett Carnes, director of North American military sales for Michelin Aircraft Tires, accepted the silver medal on behalf of Michelin at a special honors dinner held June 3.
The military's Best Value Medal is awarded to vendors that have demonstrated exceptional quality and delivery performance as measured by a computerized system that collects a vendor's past performance data and translates it into a numeric score ranging from zero to a perfect 100. Michelin scored 99.4 on this 100 point scale, Michelin said.
Michelin supplies aircraft tires to every branch of the U.S. military.
