MKS Instruments’ Ophir Optics Group has received a 2020 Supplier Recognition Award from Leonardo DRS. Ophir’s technologies are an integral part in Leonardo’s multi-dimension defence and security solutions, namely state-of-the-art optics for uncooled LWIR cameras and detectors for a variety of thermal imaging applications. These include fever detection (important for initial COVID screening in public areas), security and surveillance.
The award acknowledges MKS’ excellent responsiveness and dedicated support evidenced by consistent, on-time product deliveries with 100 per cent quality scores. The award also recognises MKS’ exemplary performance meeting surge demands which enabled Leonardo DRS to fulfil their customers’ needs.
Kobi Lasri, General Manager of Ophir Optics Group, said, “We are deeply grateful for this recognition, and proud of the collaborative relationship we developed with Leonardo DRS.”
He added, “This award is especially meaningful in 2020, in the face of the unique challenges the pandemic has brought to bear. Supply chains have become a source of competitive advantage as product life cycles shrink, and customer expectations expand to cost, service, and minimal time for delivery. Our goal is help our customers solve their challenges, whatever the conditions may be. With Leonardo DRS, this has proven highly successful based on decades of cooperation between our teams to develop and provide new advanced optics products. We look forward to strengthening such successful relationships with all of our customers.”
