Spansion Honored With 2008 Best Supplier Award From Huawei Technology

Last Updated: June 10, 2009

SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 10, 2009 -- Spansion Inc., the world's largest pure-play provider of Flash memory solutions, today announced that Huawei Technologies Corp., Ltd., one of the world's largest telecoms equipment vendors, has presented the company with the "Best Supplier Award" for 2008. One of top 24 Huawei suppliers to be recognized, Spansion was the only NOR Flash memory provider selected for the honor.

The award distinguishes Spansion's outstanding support for Huawei based on service and technological expertise, quality, responsiveness, delivery and cost. This is a particularly noteworthy recognition for Spansion, reflecting the company's strong history of customer relationships within Greater China and building on a legacy of award-winning customer support for leading world class OEMs. The award acknowledges the company's dedication to providing value-added Flash memory solutions and high levels of service to its customers around the world. This is the first year Huawei has honored Spansion with this award.

"China is a very strategic region for Spansion, and this award is a testament to our commitment to deliver leading edge flash solutions supported by a world-class customer support organization," said Tom Eby, executive vice president of Spansion's Embedded Solutions Group (ESG). "Spansion is dedicated to raising the bar for service and technical excellence, and providing more value to help enable greater profitable growth for our customers globally."

Spansion has been supplying embedded Flash memory solutions, including MirrorBit(R) NOR GL and Spansion AL products, to Huawei since 2003. The MirrorBit GL family has since become an industry standard Flash memory product family trusted by more than 1500 embedded customers worldwide. Longstanding relationships with strategic companies like Huawei have been instrumental to the growth of MirrorBit-based products, which represented 30 percent of total NOR Flash memory shipments in 2008, according to global research and analysis firm iSuppli Corporation.

"The dedicated support we receive from Spansion is instrumental to our success," says Michael Bi, Director of Huawei's Commodity Expert Group (CEG). "That's something that can make or break our own ability to provide the level of service we give to our customers. We are proud to recognize Spansion for their exceptional support in helping us achieve our goals."
