Stratosphere Quality, Receives Honda’s 2013 MRO Supplier of the Year Award
For the second time in three years, Stratosphere Quality has been chosen as one of ten suppliers to receive the prestigious Honda 2013 MRO Supplier of the Year Award. The coveted distinction is awarded to the top companies in various business categories that exemplify excellence in safety, quality, cost, delivery and management.
Pam Heminger, division manager of purchasing for Honda Manufacturing, Inc. expressed appreciation for the role each winner has played in the growth of Honda in North America, and the important role they are continuing to play as Honda implements new production technologies. “Together, we have faced a never-ending series of challenges as we grew from one plant to the 14 we have in North America today,” Heminger said.
More than 5,000 MRO suppliers provide Honda plants with a wide range of goods and services that support the manufacturing of automobiles, as well as their engines and transmissions. Steve Cage, President of Stratosphere Quality says, “We, like Honda, have experienced tremendous growth including expanding our team, technology and locations, which in turn allows us to be even more responsive to our clients. Our goal is to be as accessible to our clients whenever and wherever they need us. To be recognized by Honda over thousands of suppliers is an honor. An award like this continues to drive our company to exceed expectations.”
