Aviation Week Honors Top Performing Companies

RSS

The winners of Aviation Week’s annual Top-Performing Companies study were recognized Tuesday at an awards ceremony in Aviation Week’s Paris air show chalet. 

The annual rankings are derived from a rigorous formula designed to identify operational excellence at publicly traded aerospace and defense companies worldwide. 

The winners of the 2013 study were Boeing (revenues greater than $20 billion), Dassault Aviation (revenues between $5-20 billion) and Cubic (revenues between $1-5 billion). 

For the first time, Aviation Week also presented awards for the best average score over five years to single out companies that consistently out-perform their peers. The winners in that category were Lockheed Martin (revenues greater than $20 billion),  Precision Castparts (revenues between $5-20 billion) and Rockwell Collins (revenues between $1-5 billion). 

PwC sponsors the annual study, which debuted in 1996. 

Pictured at the awards ceremony, from left to right, are: Rockwell Collins Chairman and CEO Clay Jones; Aviation Week President Greg Hamilton; Orlando Carvalho, executive vice president of Lockheed Martin’s aeronautics unit; Cubic President and Chief Operating Officer Brad Feldmann; Dwight Weber, Precision Castparts’ director of communications; Dassault Aviation Chairman and CEO Eric Trappier; Aviation Week Editor-in-Chief Joseph Anselmo; Boeing Chairman, President and CEO Jim McNerney; and Scott Thompson, the leader of PwC’s U.S. aerospace and defense practice.
