Faurecia Automotive Seating Plant In Mississippi Earns General Motors Supplier Quality Excellence Award

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Faurecia, the world's sixth-largest automotive supplier, was presented the General Motors Supplier Quality Excellence Award for 2012 this week for its automotive seating plant in Cleveland, Miss. This is a new award program for GM, and the Faurecia Automotive Seating facility in Cleveland is among one of its first honorees.

The Supplier Quality Excellence Award recognizes supplier achievements during the period of July 1, 2011, through June 30, 2012. The Cleveland facility produces rear seat frames for a number of GM platforms across its brands, including the Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac XTS, Chevrolet Malibu and others.

"We are very proud of our associates in Cleveland and of all that they have achieved for our customer, General Motors," said Faurecia North America President Mike Heneka. "Through our Faurecia Excellence System and the commitment of the entire Faurecia organization, we are devoted to ensuring top-quality production of innovative components and systems. All of us at Faurecia are most grateful for the recognition we have earned from General Motors and are honored to be among the first to receive the GM Supplier Quality Excellence Award."

The GM award honors specific locations of top-performing suppliers. It recognizes sites that have demonstrated the highest levels of quality performance over the previous 12 months and reflects the facility's entire quality performance. Facilities are evaluated on more than a dozen metrics-based criteria. Fewer than 10% of GM supplier plants received this honor for the first half of 2012.

In notifying Faurecia of its recognition, General Motors stated, "GM is striving to move from good to great as a company, and achieving that goal depends largely on the quality of our products. We view product quality as the foundation for the overall customer experience. GM quality is now considered to be among the best in the industry.  Our continued progress is directly related to your progress and a shared commitment to quality."
