Standards to be met included:
- No late delivery times
- No plant disruptions/unauthorized changes
- QSB or BIQS Level III or higher certification
- No customer satisfaction or product management problem reporting and resolution (PRR) for 12 months
“Winning this award for six years in a row is unbelievable,” says Andy Postula, Senior Quality Engineer at Smalley. “We take our quality standards very seriously here, and to be recognized for another consecutive year is incredible. We feel so honored to be among the select few to receive this award from its inception, especially with GM’s huge supplier base. We’ll continue to work hard to stay at the top of the industry.”

Linear Springs Supplement
Smalley Linear Springs are a continuous wave formed (marcelled) wire length produced from spring tempered materials. They act as a load bearing device having approximately the same load/deflection characteristics as a wave spring. Axial pressure is obtained by laying the linear spring flat in a straight line.
