Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems has designated OX3 Corporation as a Verified Quality Part (VQP) Supplier. Executive Director of Raytheon's Performance Excellence Initiative, Gerry Zimmerman states: "This recognition is based on a history of excellence in quality deliveries of OX3's products, the satisfactory completion of a quality management system review, and a demonstration of commitment to continuous improvement." As a consequence of this recognition, Raytheon will:
- Perform minimal incoming verification of product shipments for selected parts.
- Monitor quality trends and promptly communicate areas of concern.
- Consider OX3 Corporation in any new proposal activity, and Raytheon Six Sigma Engagements.
- Evaluate retention status on a yearly basis.
On September 9, 2005 Raytheon's Material Acquisition and Product Management Director, Chris Ross encouraged OX3 to: "accept a letter of recognition as notification of induction into Raytheon's VQP Program."
