chain strategy which helps customers 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:     Delivering superior products and services
    Delivery:    Providing products and services at the right time, in the
                 right quantity and at the right price
    Technology:  Utilizing the best information, product manufacturing and
                 delivery technologies
    Service:     Placing the customer as the number one priority and ensuring
                 communication across every step of the process
    Pricing:     Delivering competitive pricing based on volume purchasing
                 through global procurement
    Flexibility: Responding to customers' market demands for product, service
                 and solution delivery worldwide
    

    "By building long-term relationships with suppliers who exemplify our
Total Cost of Ownership philosophy, we are transforming the supply chain and
giving our customers the flexibility they need to overcome any challenge,"
said John Boucher, Executive Vice President, Supply Chain Management Solutions
and Chief Procurement Officer, Celestica. "I am pleased to congratulate the
2007 TCOO Supplier Award winners and thank them for supporting our supply
chain strategy and for contributing to our end-to-end product lifecycle
solutions."
