AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Nov. 15, 2012
AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Faurecia, the world's
sixth-largest automotive supplier, was presented the General Motors Supplier
Quality Excellence Award for 2012 this week for its automotive seating plant
in Cleveland, Miss. This is a new award program for GM, and the Faurecia
Automotive Seating facility in Cleveland is among one of its first honorees.
The Supplier Quality Excellence Award recognizes supplier achievements during
the period of July 1, 2011, through June 30, 2012. The Cleveland facility
produces rear seat frames for a number of GM platforms across its brands,
including the Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac XTS, Chevrolet Malibu and others.
"We are very proud of our associates in Cleveland and of all that they have
achieved for our customer, General Motors," said Faurecia North America
President Mike Heneka. "Through our Faurecia Excellence System and the
commitment of the entire Faurecia organization, we are devoted to ensuring
top-quality production of innovative components and systems. All of us at
Faurecia are most grateful for the recognition we have earned from General
Motors and are honored to be among the first to receive the GM Supplier
Quality Excellence Award."
The GM award honors specific locations of top-performing suppliers. It
recognizes sites that have demonstrated the highest levels of quality
performance over the previous 12 months and reflects the facility's entire
quality performance. Facilities are evaluated on more than a dozen
metrics-based criteria. Fewer than 10% of GM supplier plants received this
honor for the first half of 2012.
In notifying Faurecia of its recognition, General Motors stated, "GM is
striving to move from good to great as a company, and achieving that goal
depends largely on the quality of our products. We view product quality as the
foundation for the overall customer experience. GM quality is now considered
to be among the best in the industry. Our continued progress is directly
related to your progress and a shared commitment to quality."
