SMP is pleased to announce that its STABIL facility in Germany has earned PACCAR’s 2022 10 PPM Award. Each year, PACCAR, a leading 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. This means that for every million supplier parts and components shipped to PACCAR, less than ten were defective. Additionally, in order to qualify for this award, suppliers must meet warranty support and continuous improvement criteria.

The prestigious award was presented to SMP’s STABIL personnel, to the STABIL engineering, sales and distribution facilities in Kirchheim, Germany, and the STABIL production facility in Pécel, Hungary. STABIL is dedicated to the highest-quality design, engineering, manufacturing, product development, sales, and distribution of components for automotive and heavy-duty applications.

“Receiving PACCAR’s coveted 10 PPM Award is a testament to our unyielding commitment to providing our partners with components of the highest quality,” said Dale Burks, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at SMP. “As always, we remain dedicated to providing quality that our partners can trust, and are grateful for the partnership that we continue to build with PACCAR.”
