St. Augustine, Florida, February 19, 2014…Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CarlisleIT) was recently awarded the Airbus Electrics Supplier Award for Strategic Excellence for its excellent quality standards and service during 2013. "We are pleased to be recognized by Airbus for our commitment to their delivery and design deadlines," commented John Berlin, President of CarlisleIT after hearing the news.

The electrical department of Airbus Aerostructures wanted to acknowledge CarlisleIT’s work in aligning to their strategic requirements with the reduction of Airbus’ supply base and to highlight the company’s product excellence and cost-reduction investment. As a result of CarlisleIT’s management effort to comply with the Airbus requirements, CarlisleIT was also designated as a strategic supplier to Airbus Aerostructures Procurement.

CarlisleIT has long been a supplier to Airbus of ARINC trays, electrical contacts and a wide range of wire and cable, including optical fiber. CarlisleIT's commitment to Airbus and the EU standards goes beyond excellent supplier relations as 11 of its 13 factory locations were certified ISO14001 by the end of 2013 and the remaining two will be certified by the end of 2014. Airbus had sent out a requirement to meet this standard by 2015.
