Simi Valley, CA, February 3, 2010 — Malabar International announced today that it has received a 2009 Boeing Performance Excellence Award. The Boeing Company issues the award annually to recognize suppliers who have achieved superior performance. Malabar maintained a minimum Silver composite performance rating for each month of the 12-month performance period, from Oct. 1, 2008, to Sept. 30, 2009.

This year, Boeing recognized 486 suppliers who achieved either a Gold or Silver level Boeing Performance Excellence Award. Malabar is among 358 suppliers to receive the Silver level of recognition.

Dave Sweetland, Malabar president and chief executive officer, said, “We are very pleased that our engineering and product quality have been recognized by Boeing with this award.”

Malabar supplies electronically controlled fluid conditioning equipment as well as aircraft jacks to Boeing for the 787 Dreamliner, the 747-8 Intercontinental, and other aircraft programs.

This year, Malabar is celebrating 75 years as a world leader in designing and manufacturing aircraft maintenance equipment for commercial and military aircraft.
