A defense technology supplier has been recognized for outstanding performance by one of its customers.

Walker-based Plasan North America received three-star honors at Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems’ Supplier Excellence Conference recently held in Boston.

The awards are given annually to suppliers that surpass quality expectations in the military and defense market. Candidates are judged on overall quality and on-time delivery.

“It is an honor for our entire organization to receive such a prestigious award,” said Adrienne Stevens, CEO, Plasan North America. “We are proud to be a part of such a dedicated team focused on superior performance while also delivering the latest product innovations to our customers.”

ISO certification

Plasan also recently earned ISO 9001:2015 certification following an audit conducted by Intertek, a global quality assurance provider.

“The work we do demands we adhere to precision quality and strict performance standards, and this certification is a reflection on our world-class workforce and equal commitment to quality and innovation,” Stevens said.

ISO 9001:2015 is a global quality standard that defines quality management system (QMS) requirements and performance.

The specifications are outlined in an audit process that challenges organizations to assess risks, improve effectiveness of their QMS and enhance customer satisfaction through continuous improvement.


Founded in 2006, Plasan North America is a privately held manufacturing company and supplier of vehicle armor survivability solutions, composite structures and commercial solutions.

The company designs, develops and manufactures products for the defense, homeland security, naval, automotive and aerospace markets.

It is a subsidiary of Sasa, Israel-based Plasan.
