Kennametal Inc. today announced its selection as a recipient of the Boeing 2014 Silver Supplier Performance Excellence Award. The Boeing Company issues annual awards to suppliers that meet and exceed its exacting performance requirements for quality and delivery over a 12-month period.

"It's an honor to be part of Boeing's world-class supply chain, and we are especially delighted to be recognized for delivery and premium quality products, knowing that Boeing commands the industry's highest standards for strategic suppliers," said Kennametal President and CEO Don Nolan.

Kennametal's Madison, Ala., facility earned the distinction for supplying engineered counterbalance, vibration dampening and ballast weight components for various Boeing fixed- and rotor-wing airframe applications.
