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.”
