Bombardier awarded five of its distinguished aerospace suppliers with the prestigious Diamond certification last month during a virtual Diamond Supplier Award Ceremony.

The world-class performance and competitiveness of Bombardier aircraft, and the company’s track record of excellence and innovation, are achieved with the help of strong collaboration with suppliers, and by building rewarding partnerships based on trust and respect.
