DENSO received 11 General Motors (GM) Supplier Quality Excellence awards worldwide for its efforts in 2014. The award, which is GM’s highest global award for supplier quality, recognizes production plants and facilities that meet a stringent set of quality performance criteria.

“Quality is the foundation of DENSO, and to be recognized by General Motors is a great honor,” said Scott Crockett, director of quality for DENSO International America Inc., DENSO’s North American headquarters. “Without our employees’ great attention to detail and hard work, we wouldn’t be able to achieve these levels of quality and receive multiple awards.”

• DENSO Manufacturing Tennessee Inc. – Plant 101/102 in Maryville, Tenn.
• DENSO Manufacturing Athens Tennessee Inc. in Athens, Tenn.

Suppliers are awarded based on their performance from July 1 through June 30 each year.
