GKN Sinter Metals has announced that General Motors has presented four Supplier Quality Excellence awards to plants in North America and Germany. The award winning plants in the US were identified as Germantown, Wisconsin, St. Mary’s/Kersey, Pennsylvania and Conover, North Carolina. Bad Brückenau was named as the award winning plant in Germany. This is the second year in a row that GKN has received this award at multiple plants.
This achievement means GKN Sinter Metals is within the top 5% of all General Motor’s global suppliers. The award recognises GM suppliers who have demonstrated the highest levels of quality performance over the previous 12 months and winners must meet or exceed a stringent set of quality performance criteria along with cross-functional support of the entire GM organisation.
Chris Franks, President of GKN Sinter Metals Americas Operations, stated, “These awards emphasise the quality of products our plants continue to produce, along with our dedication to providing our customers with excellent workmanship and solutions. Thank you to our employees for their efforts and commitment.”
GKN Sinter Metals supplies GM with a range of products for engines, transmissions, and other vehicle components from these locations including main bearing caps, aluminium camshaft caps and clutch plates.
