NEW YORK, N.Y., May 28, 2024 – Standard Motor Products (SMP) is pleased to announce that its STABIL facility in Germany has earned PACCAR’s 2023 10 PPM Award. STABIL, a division of SMP’s Engineered Solutions segment, is dedicated to high-quality design, engineering, manufacturing, product development, sales and distribution of components for automotive and heavy-duty applications.

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, meaning that of 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 personnel at its engineering, sales and distribution facilities in Kirchheim, Germany, and its production facility in Pécel, Hungary for the second year in a row.

“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.”
