MPP Receives Black & Decker Award

On December 13, 2005, Metal Powder Products received one of the highest honors awarded to suppliers by Black & Decker Corporation – their “Supplier of Excellence” Award for “Exceptional Cost Management.” Supplier of Excellence awards are given in five separate categories. A cross-functional committee of Black & Decker Sourcing, Planning, Quality, and Engineering personnel chooses the recipients from among all “key commodity” suppliers. Only the top 2% of Black & Decker’s worldwide suppliers receive the award.

MPP has been a supplier to B & D for more than 25 years, supplying a variety of components from its Ford Road, Ridgway, Washington Street, and MPP Mexico Divisions.
