Commercial Vehicle Group Inc. announced that its Electrical Systems facility in Edgewood, Iowa, has been awarded Platinum status in accordance with Caterpillar Inc.’s Supplier Quality Excellence Process. CVG says only a very small population of Caterpillar’s suppliers has managed to meet Platinum-level requirements for process capability, quality, continuous improvement, delivery and six-sigma deployment.

“We are extremely proud of our Edgewood team for their efforts to earn the top rating in Caterpillar’s rigorous SQEP program,” says Kevin Frailey, president and general manager of CVG’s Electrical Systems division. “This award builds on the Bronze level SQEP achievement we attained in 2009 and 2010 at our Agua Prieta facility. In its relationship with suppliers, Caterpillar emphasizes collaboration as one of its most important supplier development principles. In the case of this Platinum award, our two companies collaborated successfully, improving our performance and showing that their philosophy works.”
