Award reflects company’s role as strategic supplier to automotive division
Morgan Thermal Ceramics announces that it recently received the 3M Supplier Quality and Service Excellence Award for 2010. Morgan Thermal Ceramics manufactures and supplies 3M customers with vacuum-formed fiber shapes for automotive emission control devices that are installed on most new vehicles built in North America.
3M recently presented the award to John Stang, Vice President General Manager of Morgan Thermal Ceramics NA at the 3M Innovation Center in St. Paul, Minnesota.
“We are pleased to be selected for this significant honor and take pride in being viewed as one of 3M’s strategic suppliers,” said Mr. Stang. “This achievement is truly an outstanding example of the dedication and commitment to customer satisfaction that Morgan Thermal Ceramics strives to exhibit as part of its culture.”
3M’s suppliers are rated in accordance with its Technology, Quality, Responsiveness, Delivery and Cost (TQRDC) system, a quarterly review focused on driving continuous improvement. Morgan Thermal Ceramics personnel received especially high grades in manufacturing, materials control, customer service and account management categories.
“Over the last decade, we have grown our business with 3M more than tenfold, making 3M one of our largest customers,” said Jeff Hegarty, Morgan Thermal Ceramics Product Manager for converted fibers. “Morgan Thermal now stands as one of 3M Automotive Division’s largest vendors. We have achieved this by continually increasing the number of value added processes and products to meet 3M’s demanding applications in automotive emission control devices.”
