OTTAWA, Sept. 12 /CNW Telbec/ - DEW Engineering and Development has
received the 2007 'Medallion of Success' Award from General Dynamics Land
Systems - Canada (GDLS-C). The award is presented annually to exceptional
suppliers that serve as a standard for other GDLS-C suppliers to emulate.
This year, DEW was one of only six firms selected from over 500 companies
which supply products or services to GDLS-C around the globe. Prime
considerations for the award included outstanding efforts in technology,
responsiveness and overall value of goods and services provided with
particular emphasis placed on timely delivery and product acceptance.
Although the focus of this year's nomination was the outstanding
achievements of DEW providing add-on armor for the US Stryker BCT program, the
award also recognized DEW for its accomplishments and dedication on Canadian
armor programs, as well as its performance in providing add-on armor for the
New Zealand Light Armored Vehicle Program. DEW's overall performance was a
main reason for the recent award by GDLS-C of an additional contract to
produce armor for the US MRAP program, specifically the RG-31.
Representatives of GDLS-C presented the Medallion of Success Award to DEW
on 11 Sep 2007 at its production facility in Miramichi, New Brunswick. A
similar award ceremony is planned in the near future at its US subsidiary,
DEW Industries Inc. in Ogdensburg, New York.
Incorporated in 1978, DEW Engineering continues to be recognized as a
successful defence and aerospace specialist company that continues to grow
through strategic partnerships. In addition to its manufacturing facilities in
Miramichi and Ogdensburg, DEW's headquarters is located in Ottawa, Ontario,
Canada. DEW operates three business units: Armor, Defence and Dewbridge
Airport Systems, fully supported by Systems Engineering and Support Teams
providing such services as integrated engineering, prototyping, manufacturing
and logistics support.
