AMETEK VIS EARNS CATERPILLAR SQEP CERTIFICATION
Certification Recognizes Suppliers for Quality and Performance

GRAND JUNCTION, CO – AMETEK Vehicular Instrumentation Systems (VIS) – the industry leader in custom dashboard instrument displays for heavy trucks as well as construction, military and other vehicles – has earned Bronze certification through Caterpillar Inc.’s Supplier Quality Excellence Process (SQEP).

Caterpillar created the SQEP to recognize those suppliers who demonstrated their commitment to excellence and drive a “zero defects” culture within their organizations. Certification levels include Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum and reflect an order of increasing difficulty. Suppliers are certified through SQEP by meeting or exceeding stringent supplier performance standards, such as product quality and shipping performance, which are measured over the course of a calendar year.

“We are proud and honored to be recognized by Caterpillar with SQEP certification. AMETEK is a long-time supplier of vehicle instrumentation and dashboard displays to Caterpillar. There always has been an excellent fit between Caterpillar and its ‘zero-defects’ culture and our own focus on Operational Excellence initiatives,” comments Prakash Mahesh, Vice President and General Manager of AMETEK Instrumentation and Specialty Controls.
