KOA has today declared that it has been awarded a 2011 Total Cost of Ownership Supplier Award from Celestica. Celestica's awards program recognizes suppliers that support Celestica's TCOO sourcing strategy to provide its customers with the best possible supply chain solution for their products.
KOA Corporation is proud to be recognized by Celestica, said Mr. Hideaki Matsushita, General Manager of Global Sales Center, KOA Corporation. To support our customers, our employees are committed to our organization-wide Quality 1st initiative and continuous improvement on our operation.
This marks the sixth year of Celestica's TCOO Supplier Awards program, which evaluates and recognizes the top performers in Celestica's global network of over 3,000 suppliers.

As such, it considers the following supplier attributes: quality, delivery, technology, service, pricing and flexibility.
Congratulations to KOA Corporation for being recognized with a 2011 TCOO Supplier Award, said Craig Muhlhauser, President and CEO, Celestica. I sincerely thank KOA Corporation for supporting our strategy to drive speed and responsiveness throughout the supply chain, which ultimately provides our customers with the flexibility they need to respond to fluctuations in end-market demand and overcome any challenge.
