SPIROL announced the receipt of the 2020 General Motors Supplier Quality Excellence Award. It has proudly received the General Motors Supplier Quality Excellence Award every year since it was originally presented in 2012.
The award was presented to two of SPIROL’s locations, one in the U.S. and one in Canada — SPIROL International Corporation in Danielson, Connecticut, and SPIROL Industries Limited in Winsor, Ontario.
“Suppliers who receive this award recognition have met or exceeded a very stringent set of quality performance criteria and have achieved the cross-functional support of the entire GM organization for the calendar year 2020,” stated one of GM’s senior supplier quality engineers.
SPIROL supplies millions of engineered fastening components to General Motors’ assembly plants located around the world from several global stocking facilities. It manufactures coiled spring pins, slotted spring pins, solid pins, alignment dowels, bushings, spacers, compression limiters, inserts for plastics, disc springs, precision metal shims, installation technology, and vibratory feeding equipment.
According to a video presentation by General Motors’ top executives for Supplier Quality Development: “Each year, GM recognizes their top performing Supplier Manufacturing DUNS locations around the globe. This General Motors Supplier Quality Excellence Award is for those locations who consistently deliver quality products, on-time, and at-rate and with zero disruptions throughout the year.”
“This award is a testament to our foundational belief in providing high quality product and exceptional service to our customers,” said Tom Buchta, president of SPIROL Industries in Canada. “SPIROL is committed to being a reliable supplier to General Motors, and we are proud to have received this prestigious award once again – especially during a turbulent year filled with so much uncertainty attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
