SPIROL International Corporation has announced that two of its manufacturing locations have received the 2018 General Motors Supplier Quality Excellence Award for achieving operational excellence and quality control. This is SPIROL Canada’s fifth year and SPIROL Connecticut’s fourth consecutive year receiving the award.
According to the letter sent by General Motors notifying SPIROL of the awards: “The award is given to specific manufacturing locations and only our top performing supplier manufacturing sites are eligible to receive it. Suppliers who receive this award have met or exceeded a very stringent set of quality performance criteria and have achieved the cross-functional support of the entire GM organization. This was even a bigger challenge as GM continues to launch many new and exciting products.”
SPIROL manufactures Coiled Spring Pins, Slotted Spring Pins, Solid Pins, Compression Limiters, Inserts for Plastics, Installation Technology and Vibratory Feeding Equipment at their Connecticut facility, and Tubular Products including roll formed Spacers, Compression Limiters, Dowel Bushings, Spring Dowels, and Ground Hollow Dowels at their Canadian facility.
With only 10% of General Motors’ suppliers having received this award for 2018, these are significant achievements and a testament to SPIROL’s operational excellence and quality control – especially considering the millions or parts supplied to General Motors from SPIROL’s global locations.
