INGASCO, a subsidiary of Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation (TNSC), has received a supplier excellence award 2005 for top supplier in the Local Site Support- category.

The awards were organized by Analog Device (ADI), a semiconductor manufacturer to whom Ingasco supplies liquid nitrogen.

The awards were divided into twelve categories and the suppliers nominated for consideration for the awards included companies based in many parts of the world, most notably in the United States, Europe, Taiwan, Japan, Malaysia, and Singapore.

According to TNSC this year, Ingasco was the only Philippine company among the nominees, and received the award for top supplier in the category of Local Site Support.

The company said: \\$quot;This award demonstrates that Ingasco\\$quot;s advanced technology and excellent services are on a world-class level. The company was judged to have fully fulfilled its responsibilities to its customers. Ingasco has achieved a strong reputation for its ingenious proposals to the Philippines semiconductor industry (which is suffering from stagnant business conditions) on risk-avoidance and other crucial issues, as well as its reliable provision of information.\\$quot;
