Honeywell recently received Ford’s silver-level World Excellence Award in recognition of its outstanding performance in 2011 in key areas including on-time delivery, quality and corporate responsibility. The silver-level award was presented to only 24 suppliers at Ford Motor Company’s 14th annual World Excellence Awards event.
In 2011, Honeywell’s Atessa plant had an average of 99.5% on-time delivery and quality levels at 6 parts-per-million (PPM) for the half-million turbos supplied to Ford during that period. These excellent metrics are the result of robust teamwork between Honeywell’s Atessa team and Ford to standardize work processes and proactively approach potential issues while dealing with changes and implementing new products. These same efforts led to 0 PPM quality levels in Ford’s Puma Global applications since the start of production in September 2010.
“Meeting our customers’ needs in terms of quality and delivery is critically important,” said Honeywell Transportation Systems President and CEO Alex Ismail. “Our team in Atessa has proven that they understand what it takes to be a world-class supplier, and I’m proud of their efforts which led to this award.”
