LIVONIA, MI-TRW Automotive Holdings Corp., through its Dacice, Czech Republic, and Resolven, United Kingdom, manufacturing facilities, has earned two prestigious Ford Motor Company World Excellence Awards for exemplary performance.

"We are pleased to be a perennial winner of the Ford World Excellence award which is a tribute to our global operations and commitment to excellence," says TRW president and chief executive officer John Plant. "Winning two of only 51 global awards is a true achievement and TRW will continue to strive to reach world class levels of quality, innovation and customer satisfaction across all of our plants."

The TRW Dacice plant earned a silver award for outstanding performance in the supply of engine valves while the Resolven facility earned a Recognition of Achievement award for Durability and Reliability in its supply to Ford Motor Co.

The World Excellence Awards recognize suppliers who not only achieve the highest level of cost competitiveness, quality and delivery, but also acknowledge the diverse cultures, values, and ideas of the thousands of individuals they employ.

"Suppliers play a critical role in the ONE Ford transformation. Thank you to all of our award winners for the support and commitment to helping Ford serve our customers worldwide with the very best cars and trucks," says Alan Mulally, president and CEO.

TRW was among representatives of Ford's top global suppliers at the recent awards ceremony held at Ford's World Headquarters in Dearborn, MI. John Plant accepted the award on behalf of TRW.
