Romanian IT company Romsys became one of the privileged partners of the American holding Lockheed Martin Corporation, which acknowledged it as "Star Supplier". Romsys is the only company in Central and Eastern Europe to achieve such a performance.

"This distinction can do nothing but honor us, considering that, outside the USA, Lockheed Martin only has 6 Star Supplier partners, of which only two in IT&C: a British company, and, as of now, a Romanian one", said Marius Cojanu, Romsys chairman, in the award ceremony.

Richard J. Martin, deputy chairman of the American corporation, stated that he wanted to take part in the ceremony as he had been impressed with the Romanians’ dedication for the mission success. The Lockheed Martin official also said that the two companies cooperated very well in the ASOC project (Air Space Operation Complex System), as Romsys overcame a lot of difficulties in order to supply the solution in due time and within the initially allotted budget. He also added that the American corporation works with over 60,000 suppliers, of which only 130 are Star Suppliers.

"This recognition from Lockheed Martin is an outstanding certificate of warranty. Romsys is a success story, proving that there is success potential in Romania and this is measured today by the capacity to enter partnerships and co-operation with the big players", Ioan Mircea Pascu, Defense Minister stated on this occasion.

Lockheed Martin Star Supplier is a title awarded by the corporation to those business partners which achieved outstanding performances in meeting contract requirements in the co-operation with Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin's decision to grant this distinction to the Romanian company was taken last year, as Romsys was already included in the "Star Supplier" official list of the American company in December 2003.

Attending the award ceremony from the USA Embassy in Bucharest was Thomas Delare, assistant to the head of the American mission, who congratulated the Romanian company and wished them more such achievements.
