Yokohama obtains Caterpillar platinum recertification
For the sixth consecutive year, Yokohama Rubber Co. Ltd. has earned Caterpillar’s premier supplier award, Platinum Level Recertification in its Supplier Quality Excellence Process (SQEP). The award went to Yokohama’s factory in Onomichi, Japan, which produces original equipment and replacement off-the-road tyres for a wide range of equipment.
Caterpillar’s SQEP award identifies suppliers like Yokohama Rubber that have exhibited excellent process control, shown a desire for ongoing continuous improvement and have provided quality products to Caterpillar.
“To be recognised by a world-class OEM like Caterpillar for six years in a row is extremely gratifying and truly an honour,” said Bruce Besancon, vice-president of OTR sales at the company’s Yokohama Tire Corporation subsidy. “Earning Caterpillar’s Platinum Level Recertification is a tribute to Yokohama’s continued global commitment to deliver best-in-class quality products and service.”
