 GM WINDSOR TRIM PLANT RECEIVES CANADA AWARD FOR BUSINESS EXCELLENCE
 WARREN, Mich., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The General Motors of Canada Windsor Trim Plant, operated in coordination with GM's Inland Fisher Guide Division, received the Canada Award for Business Excellence (CABE) in the "Total Quality" category at an award ceremony in Ottawa, Ontario, on Oct. 28, 1992.
 The plant supplies complete seat systems for Cadillacs and Buicks assembled at GM's Hamtramck plant. Windsor Trim also produces seat covers and door panels for GM vehicle assembly plants throughout North America.
 "Winning the CABE Total Quality Award underscores the plant's significant quality achievements," said Larry D. Kesler, general director, Seat Systems Business Unit, Inland Fisher Guide.
 "This award is good news for Windsor Trim and Inland Fisher Guide," Kesler said. "It shows we can meet the challenges of an increasingly competitive marketplace and win."
 Sponsored by Industry, Science and Technology Canada to promote and honor Canada's international competitiveness and industrial excellence, the CABE is regarded as the preeminent Canadian business excellence award.
 Now in its ninth year, the CABE award is the Canadian counterpart to Japan's Deming Prize and the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Awards in the U.S.
 This is the second time in less than a year that Windsor Trim has been recognized for producing high-quality interior automotive trim components for its customers in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. In December 1991, Windsor Trim earned the prestigious "Mark of Excellence" award -- GM's top honor for superior performance by a component supplier in quality, cost, technology, delivery, and leadership.
 Inland Fisher Guide operates 25 manufacturing sites in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Europe, and supplies body hardware, lighting and bumper systems, seat systems, and interior systems to customers around the globe.
