Danielson, CT — SPIROL International Corporation is pleased to announce the receipt of General Motors 2014 Supplier Quality Excellence Award for achieving operational excellence and quality control at their Connecticut manufacturing center.

GM's Supplier Quality Engineers (SQEs), Design and Manufacturing Engineers and other personnel from using plants were all surveyed and statistics for quality performance in areas of line interruptions, recalls, and corrective actions were used to support the presentation of the award.

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."

SPIROL's Ontario maufacturing center has also received this Supplier Quality Excellence Award.  As GM has more than 2,300 North American suppliers, these are significant achievements and a testament to SPIROL's operational excellence and quality control considering the millions of parts supplied to General Motors from SPIROL's global locations.
