Danbury, CT – Sorry, but that’s a bit of a trick headline, as no Dodge cars are involved. Here’s the story: Dodge brand inserts made by Stanley Engineered Fastening have resulted in the supplier being chosen by General Motors as one of a select group who have made noteworthy contributions to GM’s goal of providing the best overall customer experience in the automotive industry.
”Reaching our goal to be the world’s benchmark for quality won’t happen by chance, and suppliers play a vitally important role,” said Grace Lieblein, vice-president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “Each winning company has consistently exceeded our expectations by delivering high-quality products on time, which helps us create compelling value for our customers.”
To achieve this award, Dodge had to meet GM’s stringent list of quality performance criteria and provide cross functional support to GM. Accepting this award was Robert Bingham, quality manager, who has worked hard to achieve and maintain the highest quality standards.
“Dodge inserts are the most widely recognized and widely used in the industry,” says Dodge product manager, David Calkins. “We feel we service our customers with the highest quality product and the most effective fastening solutions. And the engineering support we offer is world class.”
Dodge threaded inserts are designed to provide the performance strength of moulded-in inserts while retaining all of the advantages of insert installation after moulding. GM has many applications using Dodge product to preserve and maintain the integrity of its plastic moulded components.
