MADISON HEIGHTS, MI — Henkel Technologies recently received the Decoma International President’s Award for 2003 for innovations that lower costs while improving productivity and quality.
The award recognizes Henkel’s efforts at two key Decoma facilities. Henkel Technologies was nominated by Decoma’s Norplas and Nascote facilities for separate technologies that help ensure production lines continue running efficiently.
Norplas, which produces plastic automotive exterior parts, uses Henkel Technologies’ solvent borne version of Parcosol to quickly and effectively clean the exterior and interior of paint dispensing equipment.
The Nascote facility also produces automotive exterior components. The operation relies on Henkel Technologies’ products to clean plastics before painting and uses a Henkel Technologies’ system that effectively handles paint overspray, turning the fluid waste into a solid for easier disposal.
The President’s Award is part of Decoma’s supplier development program established in 1995. The program rates suppliers on a number of key issues related to cost, customer service, on-time delivery, materials, technology and quality.
