 BUDD SHELBYVILLE EARNS GM MARK OF EXCELLENCE
 SHELBYVILLE, Ky., Feb. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- General Motors (NYSE: GM)


officials bestowed its highest quality honor on The Budd Company's plant in Shelbyville in ceremonies held today.
 The plant, in full production for just two years, received GM's Mark of Excellence and Targets for Excellence awards.
 GM presents a Target for Excellence to a supplier who attains exemplary ratings in quality. The Mark of Excellence, achieved by only a small percentage of suppliers, is given when a supplier receives exemplary ratings in each of five categories: quality, technology, delivery, cost, and leadership effectiveness.
 Generally, suppliers meet each of the five targets in stages. Budd's Shelbyville plant scored exemplary ratings in all five targets simultaneously, so that it received the Targets for Excellence and Mark of Excellence honors at the same time. The plant now has earned top quality awards from all three domestic auto companies.
 Located about 25 miles east of Louisville, the plant employs 400 people and produces stampings and assemblies for doors, fenders and roofs. It makes door-frame assemblies for GM;s four-door Chevrolet Blazer and GMC Jimmy.
 The Budd Company, of Troy, Mich., is recognized as a leading supplier to the automotive industry.
