UTC/United Way Supplier Golf Tournament

Successful Partnerships Aid the Community

United Technologies recognizes the value of forming partnerships with innovative and competitive suppliers who can help us eliminate inefficiencies, lower costs and deliver the highest quality possible. We also seek suppliers who share our high standards for commitments to the community.

The United Way has seen a dramatic increase in demand for their services. For each of the past 80 years, UTC has been there to help support our neighbors in need. Through employee donations, volunteer efforts and special event fundraising, UTC has helped the United Way provide vital services to families and support more than 160 nonprofit agencies throughout central Connecticut alone.

Successful partnerships within our community are reflected in our high quality work product and in our ability to deliver on our commitments. Nowhere is this more evident than in the high standards for business practices, corporate responsibility and operational excellence shown by our suppliers. In one example, The UTCHQ Supplier Golf Tournament held in August 2012, a group of 80 suppliers came together in a display of community support to raise over $251,000 on behalf of the United Way. Program organizer, Bill Leikin, UTC Assistant General Counsel, praised the very generous support of the UTC suppliers. It is extraordinary efforts like this that has enabled this event alone to contribute more than $1 million to the United Way over the last 5 years.

Together, UTC employees and our supplier partners focus on operational excellence to ensure we deliver world-class products and services that delight our customers
