 GENERAL MOTORS PRESENTS LTV STEEL-CLEVELAND WORKS
 WITH TOP QUALITY AWARD
 CLEVELAND, Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- LTV Steel announced today that its Cleveland Works was presented the General Motors Corporation's "Mark of Excellence" award for supplier excellence. The award also recognizes the plant's commitment to continuous improvement in quality, cost, leadership, delivery and technology.
 LTV Steel's Cleveland Works is a major supplier of sheet steel to GM stamping plants. In addition, the LTV joint venture company, L-S Electro-Galvanizing, Inc., located in the Cleveland Works complex, provides corrosion-resistant, electrogalvanized steel for GM vehicles.
 The "Mark of Excellence" award is the highest recognition a GM supplier can receive through "Targets for Excellence," a GM program which outlines specific expectations for suppliers. To receive the "Mark of Excellence" award, a supplier must score extremely well in five different categories (quality, cost, leadership, delivery and technology) in a formal on-site assessment by a team of GM representatives. Only about five percent of all GM suppliers have met the rigid standards of the "Mark of Excellence."
 At today's ceremony held at the Cleveland Works, James Hawkins, GM's assessment engineer for the audit team, presented the "Mark of Excellence" award plaque and ceremonial flag to J.F. Bush, vice president and general manager of Cleveland Works. The flag will fly over the Cleveland Works.
 GM commended LTV Steel's Cleveland Works and L-SE on their use of process control techniques and excellent coil identification and tracking systems. The automaker's assessment team was impressed with the plant's documentation for continuous improvement and innovative work systems.
 Bush congratulated the employees on their outstanding team effort. "The General Motors auditors praised our quality, cost, leadership, delivery and technology systems, proclaiming we truly are a 'world- class' steel supplier," said Bush.
 He noted that the recognition was especially rewarding, as Cleveland Works/L-SE received the outstanding scores on their first assessment. "My heart-felt thanks to all of our employees whose contributions helped us earn the 'Mark of Excellence' award," said Bush.
 LTV Steel is a leading producer of high quality flat rolled products for demanding applications.
