Pirelli Tire wins Ford award for quality
Rome, Georgia – Pirelli’s robotized tire manufacturing technology at its Rome, Georgia facility has earned it the Ford Motor Company Q1 quality supplier award for product quality and customer care. The carmaker elected Pirelli Tire North America for its award for “the excellence of its operations and the exceptional standard of its customer care.”
To secure Q1 status, suppliers must be able to guarantee compliance with a number of core production and quality parameters; Pirelli fulfilled or outperformed all the benchmark criteria in each Q1 category as a Ford supplier.
