The award results, based solely on direct customer input, are an indication of outstanding achievement in service excellence.  Customers of the participants rated EMS providers in five service categories: Quality, Dependability/Timely Delivery, Responsiveness, Value for Price, and Technology.  Kimball Electronics was honored for achieving the Highest Overall Customer Rating in all five service categories for EMS companies with annual sales over $500 million.
