Essentra, a leading provider of essential components and solutions, has received the Supplier Quality Excellence Award from General Motors (GM) for its work in delivering the highest levels of product quality, innovation, and customer service throughout 2022.

Essentra supplies a wide range of protection caps to nine GM manufacturing sites worldwide delivered via its facility in Erie, USA. Winning the award follows a period in which there were zero quality issues and zero supply chain issues recorded across a 12-month period.

Parth Joshi, Quality Manager at Essentra Components, says he is delighted to have the contribution of the team formally recognised: “It reflects our collective efforts in upholding the highest standards of quality, innovation and customer satisfaction,” he says. “It also re-affirms our position as a trusted partner and supplier to one of the leading automotive companies worldwide.”

This is not the first time Essentra has received such an accolade. The team was similarly recognised by GM in 2019. The two organisations have a relationship stretching back more than 30 years to the early 1990s.
