U.S. Department of Defense recognizes Invensys for quality and on-time delivery

FOXBORO, MASSACHUSETTS, USA - October 3, 2006 - Invensys Process Systems today announced that the U.S. government Defense Supply Center Richmond (DSCR) has rated Invensys among its best suppliers. The DSCR is a primary source for repair parts and operating supply items within the Department of Defense supply chain. Invensys received a gold medal for achieving a perfect score in meeting stringent quality and delivery requirements for Foxboro specialty instrumentation.

Invensys received the gold medal based on the DSCR's Automated Best Value System, which collects data on vendors' past performance and translates it into a numeric score ranging from zero to 100. Gold medals are awarded to contractors that earn a score of 100. Silver medals are awarded to those who score of 99.9 to 99.0, and vendors who score from 98.9 to 98.0 receive a bronze medal. All qualified vendors must have shipped 10 or more contract lines for DSCR during a 12-month rating period, and have a DLA rating of 95 or better.

"The US Government is one of the most demanding customers a vendor can have, particularly for DOD contracts," commented Bob Jones, general manager of the Invensys Process Systems Measurements and Instruments division. "We consider it quite an honor to receive a gold medal from DSCR. This award helps to validate the concerted effort we've made in recent years to continuously improve both the quality of our products and our customer service levels."

Through the DSCR, Invensys provides the US DOD with a Foxboro fuel tank level measuring system developed for marine applications. The specialty system comprises tank level sensing, transmitting and signal conditioning components and is designed to operate safely in harsh environments, including Class I, Division I Groups C and D hazardous locations.
