Plano, TX, April 30, 2012 – Commitment to excellence over the past year has earned Ericsson recognition as a 2012 AT&T Supplier Award winner for its support of affiliates of AT&T*, one of the world’s leading data, voice, wireless and Internet services providers.
“We are proud of our long-standing tradition of providing unparalleled, innovative products and services to our business and residential customers,” said Tim Harden, president of AT&T Supply Chain and Fleet Operations. “We’re successful on that front in large part thanks to extraordinary suppliers like Ericsson that consistently go above and beyond, exceeding our expectations and helping exceed those of our customers as well.”
Ericsson was one of only six suppliers to receive the 2012 AT&T Supplier Award for its work in helping AT&T deliver outstanding service to its customers during the past year. Ericsson was recognized for its contributions across a broad scope of criteria, including supplier diversity results, creative cost management solutions, teamwork, customer service, product/service performance and sustainability.
”Ericsson has a long-standing relationship with AT&T and we are very proud to receive this important acknowledgement by AT&T,” said Niklas Heuveldop, EVP and GM of Customer Unit AT&T, Ericsson. “This award is clearly an outstanding testimony to the value we have placed in our work with AT&T.”
As part of its annual Supplier Award Program, AT&T took out a half-page ad in the April 17 edition of The Wall Street Journal to publicly thank the selected companies.
