as John Deere, Caterpillar, Oshkosh Corporation and Komatsu."

"Under Caterpillar's SQE Program, Diane and her team achieved PLATINUM status
two years in a row for process capability, quality, continuous improvement,
delivery and six-sigma deployment. Less than two-dozen sites globally have
achieved this honor. Thanks to Diane's leadership, the plant has also been
given the top supplier ranking at Caterpillar under their Supplier Quality
Excellence Program. With this kind of performance, Diane and her team have
helped gain an impressive amount of business for the Edgewood plant," Frailey
