In 2014, Boeing spent $62 billion with more than 13,000 suppliers from 47 countries. Supplier-provided components and assemblies make up more than 60 percent of the cost of Boeing products. Suppliers also played a key role for Boeing last year, enabling Boeing Defense, Space & Security to win significant new contracts and helping Boeing Commercial Airplanes set an industry record for deliveries in a single year.

Supplier of the year – 2012 & 2013
RB Enterprises was presented with a Boeing Supplier of the Year award for exceptional performance and contributions to Boeing’s overall success for both 2012 and 2013.
Out of a pool of more than 23,000 companies, RB Enterprises was one of only 16 companies and one university to receive a Supplier of the Year award, presented during a ceremony at the San Diego Convention Center.
Companies receiving the award were described as “critical to helping Boeing provide our customers the most affordable, highest quality products and services possible,” by Jack House, leader of Boeing’s Supplier Management function. He added that Boeing must have a global supply chain capable of recognizing and reducing risk, while demonstrating a strong commitment to customer service and consistent performance excellence.
The Boeing global supply chain is among the most geographically dispersed in manufacturing. The company annually purchases more than $50 billion in goods and services from more than 23,000 suppliers around the world.
The selection of the winning suppliers is based on statistical measurements of quality, on-time delivery, post-delivery support, cost and their ability to anticipate and respond to changing customer requirements.
