Bookham receives Huawei’s Excellent Core Partner Award

Bookham Inc of San Jose, CA, USA has received the Excellent Core Partner Award from telecommunications equipment manufacturer Huawei Technologies Co Ltd of Shenzhen, P.R. China. Bookham’s president and CEO Alain Couder received the award at the Huawei 2008 Core Partner Convention. The award is the fourth in recent years that Bookham has received from Huawei.

“We are pleased to give the 2008 Excellent Core Partner Award to Bookham as they have been a core optical component and module supplier to Huawei for many years. We are very pleased with Bookham product performance, the delivery, the service and the support, and we expect to strengthen the cooperation between the two companies,” said a representative of Huawei’s executive management.

“Our customers need reliable suppliers who can consistently deliver quality products with short lead times, and add real value with local sales support; we achieve this through the combination of our ownership of core technology and manufacturing facilities, our vertical integration strategy, and our dedicated and committed customer service,” said Couder.

Bookham opened its manufacturing facility in Shenzhen in March 2004, and since then the assembly of all its telecom products has moved to China. Bookham employs over 1,300 staff at the facility in Shenzhen, from where it assembles and supplies Huawei with a range of high end optical components and modules, including 10Gb/s co-packaged laser-modulators, receivers, directly modulated and tunable lasers, and 980nm pumps.
