Henrob Corporation was awarded with Ford Q1 status for achieving the highest of quality and operational standards as well as committing to continuous improvement.
The presentation ceremony was held on April 20th, 2018 at Henrob's New Hudson Facility.
The products that are at the center of all of this are Henrob's self-pierce rivets that are used in vehicle body manufacturing for joining various materials. There are two production facilities located in New Hudson that have end-to-end production of the rivets to control the quality from start to finish. The rivets are used in combination with other fastening methods when assembling vehicles, especially with the new light-weighting initiatives that are employed by OEMs.
"Being awarded with Q1 Certification means we have demonstrated through performance and organizational design as well as through our processes, that we have highly functional materials management and operational systems that are deemed exceptional," said Joseph Keeley, Operations Manager.
Accepting the award were Mark Ayres, Global Vice President Operations; Joseph Keeley, Operations Manager and Christopher Dams, Quality Manager.
