Another Caterpillar platinum award for Yokohama
Yokohama Tire Corporation has been awarded Caterpillar’s premier supplier award for the seventh year in a row. The award – Platinum Level Recertification in its Supplier Quality Excellence Process (SQEP) – went to Yokohama’s factory in Onomichi, Japan. The plant produces òriginal equipment and replacement off-the-road (OTR) tyres for a wide range of equipment.
Caterpillar’s SQEP award distinguishes suppliers like Yokohama that have exhibited excellent process control, shown a desire for ongoing continuous improvement and have provided quality products to Caterpillar.
“It’s quite a tribute for Yokohama to be recognised by Caterpillar for the seventh straight year,” said Bruce Besancon, YTC vice-president of OTR sales. “Caterpillar is an esteemed, world-class OEM and earning their Platinum Level Recertification is a high honour. It’s an acknowledgement of Yokohama’s continued global commitment to deliver best-in-class quality products and service.”
