We set the bar pretty high in performance criteria, and Bourns met every challenge. It is significant to recognize Bourns in their 75th anniversary year. We very much appreciate the efforts of the entire Bourns team for their extraordinary worldwide support, especially during this period of heavy demand and supply chain challenges.”

Said Melanie Pizzey, TTI Vice President Global Business Operations

TTI, Inc. created the Global Operations Excellence Award to recognize the provider with the highest total points across all of TTI’s three operating zones, as determined by stringent performance criteria. The Platinum Level Supplier Excellence Awards are granted to suppliers with a high level of performance for more than five years in each of TTI’s three operating zones. Each year, TTI presents the Diamond Awards to the provider with the best overall point accomplishment in each of TTI’s three operational zones.

The prizes were revealed during TTI’s virtual event on May 4th.

“My parents, Marlan and Rosemary Bourns established our core values to provide our customers with excellent quality and responsive service when they started Bourns Laboratories in their garage in Pasadena, California, 75 years ago. Three years ago, I challenged the Bourns Team to earn all three of the TTI Diamond Awards to make Bourns a better supplier for all our customers worldwide. I am grateful for the contributions that every Bourns Team Member has made to earn this most prestigious set of industry awards by achieving the highest levels of supplier excellence based on the strict TTI criteria. During our thirty-eight-year partnership, TTI has played a key role in helping Bourns build its competitive leadership. The Bourns Team looks forward to further improving our ability to serve TTI and our mutual customers.”

Said Gordon Bourns, Chairman, and CEO of Bourns, Inc.

In 2022, Bourns also received the Product of The Year Award for its IsoMOV Protectors. 

Bourns IsoMOV Protectors: Winner of the Annual Product of the Year 

Startempire Wire reported that Bourns, Inc. made one of the most significant advances in metal oxide varistor (MOV) device design. The new IsoMOV protectors, also known as hybrid protection components, integrate the GDT function directly into the MOV, resulting in better performance, operational life, and device reliability. 

Bourns is the first company to get the Award in all three of TTI’s operational zones. To win these awards, a supplier must earn recognition at every performance level across each zone. In other words, a supplier must consistently meet best practices and high standards like Bourns throughout their supply chain with all customers.
