KLA-Tencor Procurement Industry Recognition
One of our company’s core values is: Drive to be Better. No matter how well we have done, we can always do better. We continuously strive to improve our procurement and supply chain practices.

In 2006, KLA-Tencor was pleased to receive the inaugural R. Gene Richter Award for Innovation and Leadership in Supply Management. The award was given by the Institute of Supply Management (ISM) for the creation and implementation of our supply chain management process.

Our supply chain management program was also named by A.T. Kearney as a 2008 “Leader in Procurement Excellence.” The recognition was based on an in-depth assessment and benchmarking of global procurement practices.

KLA-Tencor also received the “2009 Best New Shared Delivery Service” award from the Shared Services Outsourcing Network (SSON) for the implementation of its off-shore and out-sourced procurement center.
