Superior Industries aluminum wheel manufacturing facility is awarded QS-9000 Certification.

ROGERS, Ark.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 6, 1996--Raymond C. Brown, senior vice president of Superior Industries International Inc. (NYSE:SUP) announced that the company's aluminum wheel manufacturing facility in Rogers has been awarded QS-9000 Certification by Smithers Quality Assessments Inc., a worldwide-recognized certification company.

QS-9000 was jointly developed by a Chrysler/Ford/General Motors Supplier Quality Requirements Task Force to harmonize the fundamental quality system expectations of the three major North American automakers. Certification to QS-9000 verifies conformance not only to the ISO 9001 Standard, but to specific additional requirements as well.

QS-9000 Certification demonstrates the continuing progress Superior Industries has made toward World Class excellence. Prior achievements include the Ford "Q-1", GM "Mark of Excellence," and GM "Worldwide Supplier of the Year 1993." In addition, Superior's manufacturing plant in Pittsburg, Kan., is expected to receive Certification by the end of the year.

"We made the decision several years ago to establish a corporate-wide systems approach which has been critical to Superior's preparation for this accomplishment and served as a building block for our long-term strategy to expand globally," said Brown.

"We are very proud to be one of the select automotive suppliers to attempt and achieve the newly created quality conformance standard since it represents our ongoing effort and commitment to teamwork and to maintain the highest performance standards in quality, service and price."

Superior Industries International Inc. is the world's largest manufacturer of aluminum wheels, supplying to Ford, General Motors, Chrysler de Mexico, BMW and Jaguar as well as various Japanese manufacturers including Toyota, Mazda, Nissan, Subaru and Isuzu. The company is also a leading manufacturer of accessory products for the national automotive aftermarket.
