TROY, Mich.—Dayco Products L.L.C.'s production plant in Ivrea, Italy, has been awarded Gold Supplier Certification as part of Caterpillar's Supplier Quality Excellence Process program.
The award recognizes companies that have achieved Caterpillar Quality Management System supplier certification, which includes their commitment to providing exceptional service, quality and delivery performance on an on-going basis.
Dayco manufactures and supplies both belt tensioners and idler pulleys to Caterpillar for its 1100 and 1200 series engines, along with technical and sales support.
“Dayco is proud to work closely with Caterpillar in helping them continue to be successful as a well-respected global producer of industrial machinery and engines,” Dayco CEO John Bohenick said. “Our associates at all facilities worldwide possess a deep seated commitment to customer success and improving how people live and work. We thank Caterpillar once again for recognizing our ability to meet and exceed their customer satisfaction expectations.”
Launched in 1999, the Ivrea plant, which has a work force of more than 500, makes a wide range of belt tensioners, idler pulleys and dampers used in both automotive and industrial applications.
In June, Dayco's belt tensioner and idler manufacturing facility in Wujiang, China, received Caterpillar's Silver Supplier Certification.
