Two of the manufacturing locations of SPIROL International Corp. have received the 2016 General Motors Supplier Quality Excellence Award for getting operational excellence and quality control.
This is SPIROL Canada’s fifth year and SPIROL Connecticut’s third year receiving this prestigious award.
According to the letter sent by General Motors notifying SPIROL of the awards:
“The award is given to specific manufacturing locations and only the 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 Tubular Products including roll formed Spacers, Compression Limiters, Dowel Bushings, Spring Dowels, and Ground Hollow Dowels at the Canadian facility. Coiled Spring Pins, Slotted Spring Pins, Solid Pins, Compression Limiters, Inserts for Plastics, Installation Technology and Vibratory Feeding Equipment are manufactured at the Connecticut facility.
