DUNMORE Honored as a Master Supplier by EADS Astrium for Fourth Consecutive Year

Bristol, Pa., July 11, 2013 - DUNMORE Europe GmbH has been recognized by EADS Astrium as a Master Supplier, an exclusive status held by the top tier of Astrium partners. DUNMORE is the key supplier to Astruim for filmic materials used in satellite construction. This most recent award marks the fourth time DUNMORE has been awarded Master Supplier status since 2009, an unprecedented and unmatched achievement since the award's commencement.
