Ford's Q1 award recognizes suppliers for outstanding levels of performance, product quality and service and is a prerequisite for suppliers seeking to win additional business from Ford.

Gerardo Manrique, Ford Supplier Technical Assistance (STA) manager; Barbara Doelle, Ford Purchasing site engineer; and Matthew Swis, Ford STA supervisor, presented the award to plant officials during recent ceremonies at the facility.  Located just north of Queretaro, the San Jose Iturbide plant has more than 400 employees and supplies Ford with vacuum pumps and accelerator-pedal sensors.

"Exceeding, not just meeting, Ford quality standards is our primary day-to-day objective at HELLA Electronics," said Dr. Martin Fischer, CEO of HELLA's Electronics Division in the Americas.  "Our employees take special pride in their work. This award clearly recognizes their dedication to providing Ford with products of the highest quality possible."

Opened in 2008, the San Jose Iturbide plant also has received HELLA's top global award for manufacturing excellence and quality in each of the past two years.

The company recently increased production capacity at the plant with the completion of a 50,000-square-foot addition. The facility currently manufactures accelerator-pedal sensors, body controllers, washer pumps and transmission-range sensors.
