SAN ANTONIO, Texas, August 11, 2016 – In recognition of a job well done, M2 Global Technology, Ltd., today received the Top 25 Supplier Award from Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT), the highest recognition given to the defense contractor’s worldwide network of 1,200 suppliers. The award was presented during a special ceremony at M2 Global’s headquarters in San Antonio.
Lockheed Martin’s Top 25 Supplier Awards Program selects 25 small and large businesses as top-performing suppliers each year based on overall quality, on-time delivery and dedication to continuous improvement.
“M2 Global takes pride in its decades-long history of providing outstanding products and services to our customers,” Doug Carlberg, the company’s president and chief executive officer said. “This award is a testament to our relentless pursuit of excellence, and to the commitment demonstrated by more than 50 hardworking M2 Global employees who guarantee that our products reach the customer on time and in perfect condition.”
