5 years running for the Corry, PA-based plastic injection molding company
Corry, PA, July 17, 2019 – Viking Plastics, a leading injection molding and value-added assembly service provider and a Tier 1 supplier to General Motors, announced it has received the 2018 General Motors Supplier Quality Excellence Award for achieving the highest levels of performance in quality. This is the fifth consecutive year the company has earned the award.
The annual GM Supplier Quality Excellence Award is reserved for top performing suppliers that distinguish themselves by going above and beyond GM’s stringent quality performance requirements.
Each of Viking Plastics’ employees takes the initiative to recommend process improvements that eliminate waste and optimize workflows. This enables Viking Plastics to deliver the high-quality products General Motors demands, year after year.
“The Viking team is thrilled with our longstanding relationship with General Motors and the fact that GM recognizes our excellent products, services, and ongoing performance. However, we also recognize we have to prove ourselves every day and every single year,” said Kelly Goodsel, president and CEO of Viking Plastics. “The only way to do that is through a daily dedication to quality by our entire work force. Rest assured we will work even harder to exceed expectations next year—and beyond. I’m very proud of our entire team.”
Viking Plastics has won the award six times over the seven years GM has presented it, including the last five.
