HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., May 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — The EnCore Group has been recognized as Supplier of the Year in the Production & Design Category by The Boeing Company. EnCore was one of 13 companies honored April 12 for distinguished performance in working with Boeing.

While EnCore is a newer company, founders Jim Downey and Tom McFarland have a long-standing relationship with Boeing over the course of their 40 years of experience in the industry. «Being named Supplier of the Year by Boeing is a humbling experience,» explains Tom McFarland, CEO of the EnCore Group. «Our goal is to be predictable and reliable for Boeing no matter what the challenge, consistently without fail.»

«Boeing’s success is a testament to the partnerships we hold with the finest aerospace suppliers in the world such as EnCore,» said Kent Fisher, Boeing’s leader for enterprise Supplier Management. «Together we will continue to deliver affordable, technologically advanced products and services that give our customers a competitive edge.»

With a growing reputation for on-time delivery and a commitment to quality, the four companies of the EnCore Group are making a name for themselves in aviation. In 2016, EnCore Interiors dominated North American 737 MAX Galley orders and added its first two customers in the European market, while EnCore Composite Structures saw sales double since its founding in 2011. Meanwhile, EnCore International doubled capacity to meet the EnCore Group’s machining demand, and achieved all required Boeing qualifications to be able to deliver EnCore’s first 787-10 production parts directly to Charleston, SC, all within one year of setting up operation. And still relatively new to the aircraft seating industry, LIFT by EnCore opened their new certification facility and announced two launch customers for their first product, 737 Tourist Class Seating.

This year’s recipients represent an elite group among more than 13,000 active Boeing suppliers in 48 countries around the world. This selection was based on stringent performance criteria for quality performance, delivery performance, cost, environmental initiatives, customer service, and technical expertise.
