June 16, 2014 – Laird, a global technology company, was recently recognized for their work in the area of Corporate Responsibility with the Recognition of Achievement award from Ford Motor Company. The Recognition of Achievement awards honor suppliers who improved customer satisfaction by providing significant contributions in key areas including new customer-focused technology and corporate responsibility.

Laird met the qualifications set out by Ford for their Recognition of Achievement awards, including ISO 14001 Certification and acceptance of Ford Motor Company’s Global Terms and Conditions.
