Fairbanks Morse Defense among more than 119 companies recognized

BAE Systems awarded Fairbanks Morse Defense (FDM) a Partner2Win Gold Award for achieving outstanding results in supporting repair and modernization projects aboard more than 30 naval and commercial vessels last year.

BAE Systems’ Partner2Win is a global program designed to achieve operational excellence and eliminate defects in its supply chain by raising the bar of performance expectations to meet the demand of current and future customers. As part of the program, BAE Systems meets regularly with its suppliers at their locations to transfer best practices, ensuring that their components, materials, and services meet the highest quality standards.

“The mission of FMD is to support the critically important role our military and marine customers play in defending our freedom with a finely tuned balance of capabilities, service costs, and speed of delivery,” said FMD CEO George Whittier. “We’re operating on the U.S. military’s most advanced naval vessels because suppliers like BAE Systems know they can depend on FMD to provide turnkey shipboard solutions for the entire vessel with high-quality OEM parts and expertly trained factory-certified technicians. We appreciate BAE Systems for recognizing our commitment to their supply chain.”

Fairbanks Morse Defense was among more than 119 companies recognized at BAE Systems’ Annual ‘Partner2Win’ supplier awards ceremony.

“All of our suppliers have a strong sense of ownership and dedication towards performing our vital support of U.S. Navy vessels and other maritime customers,” said Paul Smith, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems Ship Repair. “I extend my sincere thanks to all of our supply chain partners and want to recognize those who have earned our ‘Partner2Win’ Supplier Awards, including FMD.”
