At the end of each year MBDA performs an annual review of a supplier’s performance across the whole duration of that year.
Not all suppliers are reviewed as part of this process, only those that are preferred suppliers or deemed key to their business.
UK-based FSL Aerospace is a preferred supplier to MBDA as a stockist of fasteners and fixings. The criteria for the award was not only based on quality and delivery performance but also included measures on other activities and areas such as innovative approach, commercial performance, technical capability, continuous improvement and relationship.
