Bodycote awarded GM Supplier Quality Excellence Award

Bodycote, the world’s largest thermal processing services provider, is pleased to announce that its plant in Silao, Mexico is proud to have been awarded the General Motors Supplier Quality Excellence Award for the 2016 award year. This is the fifth year that GM’s Global Supplier Quality & Development has honored suppliers with this prestigious recognition award.

The award is given to specific manufacturing locations and only General Motors’ top performing suppliers are eligible to receive it. Suppliers who receive this award have met or exceeded a very stringent set of quality performance criteria as determined by cross-functional teams across the entire GM organization.

Bodycote’s Silao facility provides Low Pressure Carburising (LPC) and nitriding services to General Motors’ Silao Transmission Operations for transmission gears.
Gary West, Executive Director of GM Global Supplier Quality & Development, commented: “Congratulations on an exceptional team effort that helped your facility to win this award. Thank you for all you do to make our products great for GM, for you, and ultimately for our customers.”

Dan McCurdy, President of Bodycote’s North America & Asia Automotive & General Industrial division, noted that this award reflects the hard work and attention to detail of Bodycote’s team: “Consistency in high levels of quality and service is our aim, every day. That we achieve this consistency in quality and service is evidenced by this recognition as a top performing supplier. This means a lot to our Silao team and we are proud of their achievement.”

In 2016, Bodycote’s Livonia, Michigan plant received the General Motors Supplier Quality Excellence Award for the 2015 award year.
