SMYRNA, GAMurata Electronics North America, a manufacturer and designer of ceramic-based passive electronic components and power supply modules, has been recognized as an honouree in the Technical Compliance Award category of the 2007 TotalCost of Ownership (TCOO) Supplier Award program by Celestica.

Celestica's awards program recognizes suppliers that support Celestica's overall supply chain goal, which is to reduce the total cost of ownership for customers and provide the flexibility needed to overcome challenges.

This marks the second year of Celestica's TCOO Supplier Awards program. The program aligns with Celestica's Ring strategy, which focuses on shortening lead times through enhanced supplier proximity, as well as its TCOO supply chain strategy, which enables customers to deliver high-quality products to market quickly and at the lowest total cost. Celestica's TCOO system is designed to calculate the true cost to produce, deliver and support products and services beyond the supplier invoice price. As such, it considers the following supplier attributes: quality, delivery, technology, service, pricing, and flexibility.
