TRW through its TRW Polska Sp. z o.o. manufacturing facility in Czestochowa, Poland, has earned a prestigious Ford Motor Company World Excellence Award for exemplary performance in the supply of airbags in 2007.
“We thank Ford Motor Company for this recognition and are working hard again in 2008 to exceed expectations,” said president and chief executive officer John Plant. “This is a true testimony to our plant in Poland that has now earned this award for a second consecutive year.”
The World Excellence Awards recognize suppliers who not only achieve the highest levels of cost, quality and delivery, but recognize the diverse cultures, values, and ideas of the thousands of individuals they employ. TRW garnered one of just 47 World Excellence Awards presented to Ford Motor Company suppliers for 2007 performance.
“It is a pleasure to recognize the technical excellence of our supplier partners,” said Ford Motor Company president and chief executive officer Alan Mulally. “As we work to deliver the products and services people really want and value, we are more fully integrating our suppliers into our processes.”
TRW was among representatives of Ford’s top global suppliers at the recent awards ceremony held at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. Matthew Hett, vice president, sales and business development, accepted the award on behalf of TRW
