North Smithfield, R.I., May 2012 – Banneker Industries was once again recognized for their outstanding performance in 2011 by Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) at the 2012 Operational Excellence and Mission Assurance Supplier Conference held at the Wyndham Hotel in Andover, Mass. on May 15, 2012. Since 2008, Raytheon has annually recognized its suppliers based on three important factors: on-time delivery, quality assurance and sustainable continuous improvement processes. Out of over 4,000 Raytheon IDS suppliers, Banneker was one of 15 suppliers selected to receive the 5-Star Supplier Excellence Award.
