DDi Corp. Participates in ''Supplier Excellence Alliance'' to Implement Lean Enterprise System Procedures and Practices

ANAHEIM, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 28, 2006 -- DDi Corp. (NASDAQ: DDIC), a leading provider of technologically advanced PCB engineering and manufacturing services, today announced that it would participate in the Supplier Excellence Alliance (SEA) and move forward with incorporation of their Lean Enterprise System (LES) program.

"Implementation of LES concepts is another way DDi is committed to best practices in all that we do," said Carolyn Perrier, Director of Corporate Marketing, DDi. "DDi has leading PCB engineering services and first-tier manufacturing capabilities -- the addition of SEA and the LES system further reinforces our commitment to quality and delivering top results to our customers."

The LES is the industry-standard business system being adopted by aerospace, defense, and space suppliers to help the U.S. supply chain become more competitive. A LES helps suppliers build new capabilities that will enable them to become more competitive and better support the emerging needs of their customers. Applying LES concepts also builds a culture where lean production principles and standard work are used throughout the organization to ensure sustained improvements in delivery and quality while reducing lead times and cost.

"Even for a technology leader in the PCB industry like DDi, the SEA Lean Enterprise System helps shape a culture where 'lean' production principles and standard work are deployed throughout an organization, not only in manufacturing facilities," notes Barry Neighbors, SEA's Director of Outreach. "Adoption of our LES program further demonstrates their leadership in expanding their capabilities and commitment to attain the latest industry standards."

SEA is the joint program office for the aerospace, defense, and space industries' supply chain conversion. As a non-profit alliance of leading industry prime contractors, SEA's purpose is to accelerate supply chain performance and help U. S. suppliers become more competitive. SEA member companies include BAE Systems, The Boeing Company, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman Company, United Technologies, Parker Aerospace, Rockwell Collins, Pratt & Whitney, Hamilton Sundstrand, Sikorsky Aircraft, Textron, Bell Helicopter, Cessna Aircraft, Honeywell, TW Metals, Space Systems Loral, Bombardier, Hitco Carbon Composites, and Dresser-Rand.
