FCA US LLC is excited to announce their Sterling Stamping Plant has been awarded bronze status by World Class Manufacturing for the improvements they’ve made. This is the twelfth facility to receive this designation. Keep reading for more information.
The FCA US LLC Sterling Stamping Plant in Michigan celebrated 50 years of production in 2015. In July FCA US LLC announced that they would be investing more than 166 million in three new press lines at the plant which would help meet the increase in product demand. So it is very exciting to start off the new year with this designation.
“Being awarded bronze after 50 years of service and in the middle of a significant expansion is a remarkable achievement,” said Brian Harlow, Vice President – Manufacturing, FCA North America. “The bronze designation recognizes the focus, dedication and commitment of our workforce to building on the achievements of the past while laying a solid foundation for the future.
“As the industry returns to pre-recession volumes, WCM has been a key factor in driving efficiencies throughout our operations, which have allowed us to meet that demand,” said Harlow. “The Company’s growth could not have been achieved without the support of our UAW partners. Our hourly employees have demonstrated that they are committed to keeping FCA US competitive with the best manufacturing facilities in the world.”
