NORMA Group has received Platinum Supplier Status 2015 from General Motors for its site in Pilica, Poland. The US automaker presents this award to its suppliers for their outstanding performance and thus recognises NORMA Group for its reliability as a supplier, for its high-quality products and for its excellent service.
Werner Deggim, CEO of NORMA Group, comments: “Platinum Supplier Status from General Motors (GM) shows the high-quality products we offer; how efficient
our manufacturing systems are; and how high our standards are for service to the customer. In addition, the award also demonstrates how highly
motivated and committed our team in Poland are, as well as our company-wide approach to continuous improvement.”
Only the best suppliers who meet GM’s strict quality criteria receive Platinum Supplier Status. For instance, the PPM rate at NORMA Group in Poland
was an average of only four defective parts per million in 2015 and delivery reliability of over 98% was achieved. “NORMA Group’s dedication and
commitment to constantly exceeding our expectations makes the company one of our best suppliers and business partners,” said David Poole, general
director of supply chain at GM.
In Poland NORMA Group produces numerous joining products such as NORMAQUICK plastic connectors and NORMAFLEX fluid systems and fuel lines for customers
in the automotive industry. Around 540 employees work on approximately 9,000m2 of floor space at the plant.
