Corry, PA, June 2021—General Motors Corporation has awarded Viking Plastics the Supplier Quality Excellence Award for 2020, marking its 7th consecutive year receiving the award. Suppliers who receive this award recognition have met or exceeded a very stringent set of quality performance criteria and have achieved the cross-functional support of the entire GM organization for the calendar year 2020.

Due to COVID-19, the 2020 award certificates were presented electronically. In a congratulatory video message, General Motors’ Executive Director Supplier Quality and Development Rick Demuynck stated, “Each year we pause and recognize our top-performing Supplier Manufacturing DUNS locations across the globe. This recognition is for those locations who consistently deliver Quality Products, on time and at rate, and with zero disruptions throughout the year. 2020 was an unpredictable, challenging, and also remarkable year… however, we were able to be successful because of your leadership, creativity and resilience. … You truly demonstrated what it means to be ‘One Team’.”

Demuynck went on to say, “This is truly a great achievement and one that we should all be proud of and celebrate. … Through all of the challenges, you found a way to achieve.”

Viking Plastics President and CEO Kelly Goodsel recognized the continued hard work of the company’s workforce. “I’m extremely proud of our entire Viking Plastics team and grateful for the hard work and dedication they consistently put forth. Their commitment to quality is the reason we’ve received this award every year since 2014, and they especially deserve this recognition for their ability to overcome unprecedented challenges in 2020 and maintain Viking’s high-quality performance.”
