SMP Earns PACCAR 2023 10 PPM Award

SMP's STABIL facility in Germany received PACCAR's 10 PPM award for the second straight year.

Standard Motor Products announced its STABIL facility in Germany earned PACCAR’s 2023 10 PPM Award. STABIL, a division of SMP’s Engineered Solutions segment, focuses on design, engineering, manufacturing, product development, sales and distribution of components for automotive and heavy-duty applications, the company said.

Each year, PACCAR, a manufacturer of light, medium, and heavy-duty trucks under the Kenworth, Peterbilt, and DAF nameplates, recognizes suppliers who achieve its “10 PPM” quality standard. That means of every million supplier parts and components shipped to PACCAR, fewer than 10 were defective. Suppliers must also meet warranty support and continuous improvement criteria to qualify for this award. According to the company, it’s the second straight year SMP’s engineering, sales and distribution facilities in Kirchheim, Germany, and its production facility in Pécel, Hungary have received the award.

“We are once again proud to receive PACCAR’s prestigious 10 PPM Award,” said Dale Burks, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at SMP. “This award is a testament to our unyielding commitment to consistently providing our partners with the highest-quality components, and we are pleased to continue building our partnership with PACCAR.”
