HONDA OF AMERICA MFG. PRESENTS UNITED TECHNOLOGIES AUTOMOTIVE, INC. WITH QUALITY AND DELIVERY AWARDS
TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- United Technologies Automotive, Inc. (UTA) was presented with supplier awards for outstanding achievement in Quality & Delivery by Tom Yashiki, president of Honda of America Mfg. (HAM) here today. The awards were accepted by UTA-Tampa Plant Manager Mike O'Day. United Technologies Automotive was among only 27 of HAM's 256 North American suppliers to receive Quality Awards and among only 33 to receive Delivery Awards at the company's 11th annual supplier conference in May. Only 13 suppliers won double awards. United Technologies Automotive's Tampa plant makes auto door locks for the Honda Accord and Civic manufactured at the Marysville and East Liberty, Ohio, auto plants. UTA's Tampa plant manufactures automotive electronics for customers worldwide. "We are pleased to recognize United Technologies Automotive associates for their commitment to supplying quality parts for Honda products," said Dave Nelson, vice president of Purchasing for HAM. "Competition in the motor vehicle industry is tougher than ever," Nelson said. "Reflecting these standards of competition, it was harder than ever to win a supplier award from Honda." The principal criterion for receiving a Quality Award was tightened 25 percent. Yet 27 Honda suppliers received a Quality Award and 30 suppliers achieved a zero quality reject rate for the entire year. "These accomplishments represent a significant effort on the part of our suppliers," said Nelson. "It is very rewarding to be a partner with them in achieving these positive results on behalf of our customers around the world." United Technologies Automotive began supplying parts to HAM in 1987. The company won HAM Supplier Awards in 1992 for Quality and Delivery. -0- 08/13/93 CONTACT: Roger Lambert of Honda of America, 513-644-7714; or Timothy Weir of United Technologies Automotive, 313-593-9672 (UTX HMC) CO: UNITED TECHNOLOGIES AUTOMOTIVE, INC.; HONDA OF AMERICA MFG., INC.
