Muskegon, Michigan, USA...Kaydon Bearings, an SKF Group company, today announced that it has received a 2013 Boeing Performance Excellence Award, given annually by Boeing to suppliers who achieve superior performance.

Kaydon is one of only 124 suppliers to receive the Gold Level award, having maintained a gold composite performance rating for 12 consecutive months, from October 1, 2012 to September 30, 2013.

"Kaydon is delighted to be honored again this year by Boeing, and especially proud to achieve the gold level," said John Saber, director, aerospace and defense, for Kaydon Bearings. "This award is a tribute to the hard work and dedication of the entire Kaydon team."
