SPIROL Canada Receives 2014 General Motors Supplier Quality Excellence Award For The Third Consecutive Year
Windsor, ON – For the third consecutive year, SPIROL Industries Ltd. has received the General Motors Supplier Quality Excellence Award.
The award was received on behalf of the entire SPIROL team by Daniel McLean, Quality Manager and Chris Stanton, Operations Manager. GM has 2,300 North American suppliers and SPIROL was one of 80 companies to receive the award all three years.
According to GM, “suppliers who receive this award have met or exceeded a stringent set of quality performance criteria and have achieved the cross-functional support of the entire GM organization. The award recognizes those suppliers who have demonstrated the highest levels of quality performance over the past 12 months.” A by-the-numbers look at progress in quality parts delivered by GM suppliers is provided on their news media web site.
Each supplier who won the award met thirteen quality criteria over a period of twelve months with one notable criterion being: "Zero – Number of defects in parts and components delivered by Supplier Quality Excellence Award winners."
