Standard Motor Products Earns PACCAR 2022 10 PPM Award

The 10 PPM standard means that less than 10 out of every million supplier parts shipped to PACCAR were defective.

Standard Motor Products (SMP) announced it has earned PACCAR’s 2022 10 PPM Award.

Each year, PACCAR, global manufacturer of light-, medium-, and heavy-duty trucks under the Kenworth, Peterbilt, and DAF nameplates, recognizes suppliers who achieve its “10 PPM” quality standard, which means that less than 10 out of every million supplier parts and components shipped to PACCAR were defective. To qualify for this award, suppliers must also meet warranty support and continuous improvement criteria, according to SMP.

SMP says the prestigious award was presented specifically to its Independence, Kansas, manufacturing facility. This location is dedicated to manufacturing state-of-the-art vehicle components through vertically integrated and lean manufacturing techniques, producing a wide variety of vehicle electronics including sensors, controllers, switches, regulators and other ignition components.

“SMP is proud to receive this 10 PPM Award from PACCAR, recognizing our commitment to providing components that meet the highest of quality standards,” said Dale Burks, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at SMP. “We are grateful for our relationship with PACCAR, and remain committed to delivering real solutions to our partners.”
