Platinum SQEP Award for ABB Turbocharging in Bolingbrook, IL
2014-03-14 - Following its Gold Level Award in 2013, ABB Turbocharging in Bolingbrook, IL, in the United States has been awarded a Platinum Level Supplier Quality Excellence Process (SQEP) Award by Caterpillar. SQEP is Caterpillar’s system for ensuring the high quality of its suppliers and confers upon a company preferred supplier status. Caterpillar’s SQEP certification recognizes their supplier’s dedication to providing superior quality and is only awarded to those who demonstrate such world-class performance on an ongoing basis. Each year, suppliers are evaluated with increasingly strict criteria for distinguishing outstanding supplier quality performance, exceptional service, capacity planning, and delivery performance.
Platinum is the highest and most difficult level that can be achieved.
“This award was made possible by the dedication and team work of the entire ABB Bolingbrook team and the excellent support we receive from ABB Turbo Systems, and the management support in Miramar,” said Vice President OEM Business North America Richard NePaul.
Achieving SQEP status for equipment as complicated and varied as a turbocharger constitutes a major achievement, because it must meet strict requirements in several categories, including product quality, process management, manufacturing, logistics, delivery and customer service, just to name a few.
