Metaldyne, LLC headquartered in Plymouth. Mich., USA, has reported that three of its global operating plants have received customer awards for 2013, including two Supplier Quality Excellence Awards from GM and a supplier award from Hyundai.
General Motors recognised Metaldyne Powder Metallurgy facilities located in St. Marys, Pennsylvania, USA and North Vernon, Indiana, USA, for quality performance over the past 12 months. Plants must meet a set of stringent quality and delivery performance grading criteria to be eligible for the award, which is only given to a select group of GM’s top performing suppliers.
Metaldyne’s plant in Pyeongtaek, South Korea was also awarded with a certificate from Hyundai Mobis for 100% on-time delivery of balance shaft modules used in the engines of several top selling Hyundai and Kia vehicles.
“All of Metaldyne’s facilities focus on maintaining operational excellence through continuous improvement activities, and the customer recognition we receive each year is a testament to our hard working employees who make this operating model a success,” stated Thomas Amato, President and CEO, Metaldyne, on receiving the awards. “It is an honour to be recognised by General Motors and Hyundai Mobis for the efforts of our dedicated employees at these facilities.”
