SUPPLIER CONTINUOUS QUALITY IMPROVEMENT AWARD

TOKYO, Japan, March 4, 2010 – DISCO Cororation has been recognized as one of 10 suppliers to receive Intel Corporation's prestigious Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement (SCQI) award.

In 2009 DISCO provided precision cutting, grinding, and polishing equipment deemed vital to Intel's success.

"DISCO is both proud and humble to be recognized by Intel with our tenth consecutive SCQI award. We have seen many global political, economic, and social changes over this past decade; but through it all, we have strived to exceed Intel's challenging supplier performance expectations. We believe that our continuous improvement activities are helping our global organization weather this most recent sever economic storm. We will redouble our efforts to further strengthen our organization to cope with any future challenges," said Hitoshi Mizorogi, chairman and CEO of DISCO Corporation.

"It is with a great deal of respect and admiration that Intel recognizes DISCO Corporation for their unprecedented accomplishment of achieving a tenth-consecutive SCQI award in 2009. During the past year DISCO continued to demonstrate outstanding customer service, affordable solutions and technical leadership in their market segment. We look forward to their continued leadership in innovation, operational excellence and sustainability," said Robert Bruck, vice president of Intel's Technology and Manufacturing Group and general manager of Technology Manufacturing Engineering.

The SCQI award is part of Intel's Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement program, which encourages Intel's key suppliers to strive for excellence and continuous improvement. To qualify for SCQI status, suppliers must score at least 95 percent on a report card that assesses performance and ability to meet cost, quality, availability, delivery, technology and customer satisfaction goals. Suppliers must also achieve 90 percent or greater on a challenging improvement plan and demonstrate solid quality and business systems.
