Lockheed Martin’s Sikorsky brand recognized Timken twice at a recent ceremony honoring the helicopter company’s top suppliers for 2018.
Timken earned “Supplier of the Year” honors for its contributions to the Canadian Maritime Helicopter Program’s CH-148 Cyclone. In a press release, Sikorsky said Timken’s New Philadelphia, Ohio, facility did an excellent job in 2018 by executing short lead times and achieving technical success. Timken was one of only seven suppliers to achieve the distinction for 2018.
Also, Sikorsky cited Timken’s Lebanon, N.H., location as an “Elite Supplier” honoree. Timken produces precision OEM parts for Sikorsky and many of the world’s leading aerospace companies. Timken joined 18 other companies on the “2018 Elite Supplier” list, which honored suppliers for best-in-class performance in achieving on-time delivery, cost and quality standards.
“We appreciate the recognition, and strive to provide this same level of quality service to all of our customers,” said Vince Mennona, Timken national sales manager, aerospace. “We’re proud to play an important role in keeping vital machines such as Sikorsky helicopters safely in motion.”
Vincent J. Mennona Jr. is director, aerospace bearings, Americas at The Timken Company.
Named to this position in early 2015, Mennona is responsible for advancing the company's North American position in commercial and military aviation, space flight, and critical motion market solutions.
