Viking Plastics’ partner to open new plant to serve Whirlpool
April 27, 2021, Arujá, São Paulo, Brazil – Injequaly Industria LTDA, a Brazil-based injection molding company and partner of Viking Plastics in Pennsylvania, is proud to announce that they have received the Whirlpool Supplier Award for Quality Excellence.
To qualify for this award, suppliers must not have caused any plant disruptions in any of Whirlpool’s facilities worldwide – an especially challenging task given the COVID crisis throughout 2020.
Injequaly reports that they are preparing to open a new plant to serve Whirlpool. “We are in the advanced process of opening a plant in Joinville to serve Whirlpool in Southern Brazil,” said Fernando Esteves, Director of Development. “This new plant will supply parts for the refrigeration system. I believe the fact that we are working together with the customer to open this new plant helped us earn this award.”
Also a factor in earning this award was service turnaround time. Assistance in addressing quality issues was less than 24 hours.
“Viking Plastics is very proud of the partnership with Injequaly,” said Viking’s President & CEO Kelly Goodsel. “This is another example of how Viking Plastics can serve its customers across industries (Auto, Appliance, Industrial, HVAC) and across the globe. Congratulations to Fernando, Plant Manager Marcelos Dias, and the entire Injequaly team!”
Despite the restrictions put in place by the COVID-19 pandemic, almost 19 million parts were delivered in 2020 for Whirlpool’s laundry e cooling system. 15 presses were devoted to service Whirlpool’s needs.
“We at Injequaly take great pride in receiving this award. It recognizes the hard work and dedication it takes to manufacture and deliver these products, especially during the pandemic, and to maintain our high-quality standards,” added Esteves.
Founded in 2003, Injequaly is a partner of Viking Plastics in Corry, Pennsylvania USA. Injequaly molds tight-tolerance products for automotive, consumer and industrial markets. The company is ISO 9002 certified and is working toward ISO 14001 certification.
