Toyota Europe recognizes ArcelorMittal's outstanding quality performance

ArcelorMittal received the Built in Quality supplier award from Toyota Europe on Thursday 9 February 2017. The ceremony took place at the Toyota Motor Manufacturing plant in Burnaston (UK). The event was attended by delegates from ArcelorMittal's Automotive Europe commercial team and the ArcelorMittal Atlantique and Lorraine cluster.

The Built in Quality award was presented by Toyota Europe in recognition of ArcelorMittal’s impressive quality performance including:

  • A low number of claims which exceeded Toyota Europe’s quality target by more than 15%
  • Recognition as the best steel supplier in Toyota Europe’s annual supplier assessment for the second consecutive year.
  • There is now a very significant and increasing gap between ArcelorMittal’s performance and that of our competitors.
  • Zero quality problem reports (QPRs) in 2016 for ArcelorMittal Mardyck which is the main supplying mill for Toyota Europe’s automotive and exposed galvannealed steels. (ArcelorMittal Mardyck is a part of the ArcelorMittal Atlantique and Lorraine cluster.)
  • ArcelorMittal’s recognition as the best quality steel supplier for Toyota Manufacturing Russia in 2016.

In addition to the 2016 results, Toyota recognized ArcelorMittal for the efficiency and robustness of our built in quality project for galvannealed steel deliveries.

ArcelorMittal intends to maintain these excellent results and continue to improve on them in the years to come. The other ArcelorMittal mills which supply Toyota Europe are determined to follow the example of ArcelorMittal Mardyck and achieve flawless quality.
