Hennessy Industries, Inc.’s BADA wheel weights manufacturing facility in Bowling Green, Ky., was recently named a recipient of the 2014 General Motors Supplier Quality Excellence Award. The Bowling Green BADA facility is now a three-time winner of the award, having also won in 2012 and 2013.
“BADA employees are responsible for our sustained success and good relationship with GM,” said Kevin Keefe, vice president of services and sales support for Hennessy Industries. “BADA products are outstanding in their performance, and they are a reflection of our top-performing staff. We’re grateful to have been recognized by GM once again with this honor.”
General Motors first launched its Supplier Quality Excellence Award in 2012 to recognize suppliers that have demonstrated the highest levels of quality performance on an annual basis.
Hennessy Industries’ BADA facility in Bowling Green, Ky., has supplied General Motors with steel wheel weights for use in passenger vehicle manufacturing in North America and beyond since 2005.
Andrew Freeman, quality manager for the BADA facility in Bowling Green, says the award was a much-welcomed validation of the high-quality work being done at the plant every day.
“GM is an industry standard, and being recognized by them again is a great honor,” said Freeman. “We believe that we are the premier supplier of lead-free wheel weights, and this award puts a firm foundation under that belief.”
