The Raybestos Powertrain plant in Sullivan, Indiana, recently was awarded the GM Supplier Quality Excellence Award for outstanding performance during 2017. Quality Manager Jerry Workman traveled to Pontiac, Michigan, in December 2018 to meet with Supplier Quality Engineer Narendra Jagmohan of GM and receive the award. Jagmohan appreciated Raybestos Powertrain’s effort put into each shipment and congratulated the Sullivan plant on the accomplishment.
“Raybestos Powertrain made this possible by having good working relationships with GM, responding to concerns in a timely manner and ensuring that employees understand their responsibilities of efficiently and effectively manufacturing parts,” Workman said.
GM’s stringent criteria for the Supplier Quality Excellence Award includes having zero customer complaints for 12 months and displaying quality performance of less than one defective part per million (PPM). Other metrics used for award-eligibility requirements include being TS16949 certified and QSB or BIQS Level III or higher certified. GM uses an extensive OE supplier scoring system to track manufacturing analytics such as PR/R’s, plant disruptions, and severity scores.
2017 marks the second year in a row that the Raybestos Powertrain Sullivan plant has received the award. It is the fifth consecutive year that one or more facilities within the Gearbox family has been honored to be recognized among this distinguished group of top performing OE suppliers.
“Raybestos Powertrain is pleased to have received the General Motors Supplier Quality Excellence Award for outstanding quality performance,” said Dean Decker, director of operations.
