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 the company's news media website.
Each supplier who won the award met 13 quality criteria over a period of 12 months with one notable criterion being: "Zero – Number of defects in parts and components delivered by Supplier Quality Excellence Award winners."
This is a significant achievement 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.
