Consolidated Metal Products earn OEM recognition

Consolidated Metal Products (CMP), the world’s largest full-line manufacturer of high-strength, cold-formed u-bolts, was recently honored by three truck manufacturers.

Paccar, Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) and Mitsubishi Fuso have all presented CMP with awards for quality in their manufacturing process.

CMP was one of 26 suppliers to be recognized for meeting the Paccar’s 10 ppm standard in 2017, which means they had 10 or fewer defective parts for every million parts shipped to Paccar. CMP also met performance criteria for on-time delivery and support of the OEM’s operating divisions and its customers, the company says.

DTNA selected CMP as one of its elite suppliers to achieve the Masters of Quality Award for 2017, the highest recognition it gives to its suppliers. DTNA recognizes manufacturers from the U.S., Canada and Mexico that meet or exceed the company’s quality, delivery, cost and technology requirements and expectations as measured on a Balanced Scorecard and that demonstrate an ongoing commitment to improving the quality of their products.

CMP Pratsa, S.A. de C.V., CMP’s joint venture in Mexico, also was also honored with the Masters of Quality Award for 2017 by Daimler. This marks the 15th time CMP has been recognized by DTNA for its quality efforts and the seventh time CMP Pratsa has been honored, the company says.

Finally, Mitsubishi Fuso presented CMP with an Award of Quality 2017 for excellence in zero defects.

“CMP focuses on providing quality, defect-free products to all our customers. We are honored that three of our customers have recognized the care we take during the manufacturing process to ensure our products are of the highest quality,” says John Bernloehr, CMP president. “We will continue to manufacture high quality products so we can meet and exceed our customers’ expectations for years to come.”
