Caterpillar has awarded Yokohama Tire Corp. a premier supplier award: the Platinum Level Recertification in its Supplier Quality Excellence Process (SQEP). This is the fifth consecutive year Yokohama has earned the award.
Yokohama’s factory in Onomichi, Japan, which produces OE and replacement off-the-road tires, was honored with the award.
Caterpillar’s SQEP award recognizes suppliers who have exhibited excellent process control, shown a desire for ongoing continuous improvement and have provided quality products to Caterpillar.
“Once again, we’re extremely honored to receive Caterpillar’s Platinum Level Recertification,” said Andrew Zeisser, YTC director of OE sales. “Earning an award like this five years running from a world-class OEM like Caterpillar is a true testament to Yokohama’s global commitment to deliver best-in-class quality products and service.”
