Thursday, June 2, 2022

Mission Viejo, CA (June 2, 2022) – Holt Integrated Circuits today announced that Lockheed Martin Corporation, one of the world’s largest defense contractors, has awarded the Company with Elite Supplier Status for the third year in a row. Fewer than one percent of Lockheed’s thousands of suppliers receive this status annually, which recognizes Holt as one of Lockheed’s premium suppliers.

Holt has been supplying Lockheed Martin with MIL-STD-1553 transceivers for their critical Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) program since 2003 and was selected for the Elite Supplier Status Award by a cross-functional leadership team at Lockheed, providing recognition across the entire Corporation. In order to achieve Elite status, a supplier must have 12 months of perfect or best-in-class quality and delivery performance, maintain a strong customer focused relationship and embrace a continuous improvement culture.

Holt is also the recipient of numerous other supplier awards, including Lockheed Martin’s ESBA Star Supplier Award for 100% quality performance and 100% on-time delivery to the JDAM and other programs.

“Holt is honored to receive this very prestigious award,” said David Mead, President and CEO of Holt. “It reinforces Holt’s continuing commitment to provide our customers with the highest level of product quality, on-time delivery and customer service.”

Daniel Griesgraber, Subcontract Program Manager and Sr. Manager at Lockheed Martin stated, “Holt has been a critical C6ISR supplier providing transceivers for the JDAM program for over 10 years. The Holt team has worked as a partner with Lockheed’s sourcing and program teams to ensure that on time, on cost and a quality product is delivered to support the yearly JDAM production lots.”
