DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - Feb 2, 2012) - Marlow Industries, world leader in quality thermoelectric technology, today announced it has won critical industry recognition in the defense and telecom markets from industry leaders Raytheon and JDSU. Awards were presented in 2011 for product and service excellence.

"We are honored to receive these awards. We work hard to ensure our customers' success is placed front and center which means truly working together as partners," said Barry Nickerson, general manager, Marlow Industries. "Beyond technological excellence we strive for service excellence. If we can anticipate customers' needs before they know they have a need -- we are doing our job."

Marlow Industries was recognized for its exceptional performance in supporting Raytheon Company's Space and Airborne Systems (SAS) business at an annual Supplier Excellence Awards Dinner hosted by the aerospace company in Los Angeles, Calif. Marlow Industries was selected for its ability to meet demanding standards in the areas of quality and delivery performance, customer satisfaction, and total business and financial health. Evaluated by Raytheon buyers and material program managers, Marlow Industries was among only 39 suppliers (representing less than one percent of the Raytheon SAS supplier base) selected for this award.

"The men and women serving our country depend on our products in critical and dangerous missions. Our team at Marlow is committed to the highest standards of excellence and we're honored to be recognized by Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems," said Stan Thomas, Marlow Industries' defense industry account manager.

In telecommunications, Marlow Industries was designated "2011 Supplier of the Year" by JDSU, the leader in components and subsystems for optical communications. JDSU recognized Marlow Industries for its commitment to flexible support beginning in the design process and carrying through to product introduction and high-volume production.

According to Bill Marsh, Marlow Industries' telecommunications industry account manager, "The key to our success in partnering with JDSU and other industry leaders is the global depth of our customer relationships. We are willing and able to support our customers' business -- no matter their time zone -- from design to production and beyond. Our goal is to help our customers lead in the market for the long-term -- anticipating and addressing market needs in advance."
