Representatives from more than 75 companies converged on Amarillo, Texas, from across the country this week to attend the first Pantex Supplier Conference.
The conference, arranged by the Pantex Supply Chain Management Division, gave suppliers a chance to interact with Pantex senior management, federal officials and supply chain personnel to increase efficiencies and deliver a better product.
The keynote speech was delivered by Daniel Saiz, NNSA manager of M&O contractors, who discussed procurement opportunities within the nuclear weapons enterprise.
Remarks by Pantex leadership focused on ways that representatives could become preferred suppliers while delivering on the safety, security and quality standards that are a hallmark of business at Pantex.
Plans call for making the conference a yearly occurrence.
