CAT SQEP Gold hat trick by Nordic Lights
JAKOBSTAD, Finland, January 2020.
Nordic Lights has received its third Caterpillar SQEP (Supplier’s Quality Excellence Program) gold in January 2020.
This means that Nordic Lights meets the high standards set by Caterpillar regarding quality, product documentation, and delivery performance. To receive a SQEP certificate, the performance of the supplier is evaluated and awarded a bronze, silver, gold or platinum certificate based on the result.
— We are very pleased to receive our third gold certificate from CAT, as it is concrete evidence of our consistently high quality and reliability, says Operational Excellence Manager Matti Leipälä.
The basis for the SQEP program is a strategic partnership aiming at mutual development. Nordic Lights can boast a long history of cooperation with Caterpillar and first achieved a SQEP bronze certificate back in 2009. Nordic Lights was also the first work light supplier ever to achieve the gold level.
– Our long-standing relationship with Caterpillar has been a source of great inspiration for us, and many innovations have been developed over the course of our partnership. We are very excited to see what the future holds, says Key Account Manager Lauri Koskimaa.
Nordic Lights’ manufacturing processes have taken inspiration from the global tech leaders, offering one of the leanest production chains in the branch of business. The daily work to improve further continues, and in addition to that the company also puts the latest technology and innovations into use in new areas of the production chain.
