Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group (B&W) recently completed its annual supplier review for 2014 and has recognized Howden as a key supplier. In order to be considered, suppliers need to achieve a certain level of revenue combined with a high level of criticality of products and services for B&W’s power utility business. If a supplier meets these criteria, B&W further rates it on hardware and software delivery performance, hardware and software quality, and ease of doing business. Howden’s overall score for 2014 was 98%.
This award reflects Howden’s commitment to “Best Team Wins.” In addition to B&W’s announcement, Howden was presented with a plaque. In 2014 B&W placed orders with Howden for a combined value of $9.2 million, which included equipment for two power plants. Howden’s successful execution of these projects is the result of the efforts of many Howden colleagues, including sales, engineering, manufacturing, and logistics in Medina, Fairlawn, and Columbia.
