Goodyear Dunlop’s Sava factory wins Ford Q1 award

The Goodyear Dunlop Sava Tires plant has received the respected Ford Q1 certification.

The Ford Q1 certification acknowledges supplier facilities or manufacturing sites which have achieved excellence in a range of important criteria including capable systems, high performance, superior manufacturing process, and satisfied customers. The Q1 mark is considered worldwide as an indication of exceptional quality.

The official award was presented to the Goodyear Dunlop plant by a representative from Ford. A flag is now flying outside of the plant as a constant reminder. Goodyear Dunlop’s director of Product and Process Quality EMEA, Brad Heim, and Goodyear Dunlop Sava Tires Manufacturing director, Julien Frezard, were also present to congratulate Goodyear Dunlop employees on their efforts in achieving the standard.

Frezard said: “This certification is very significant for our plant and rewards the hard work and dedication of our employees to deliver a top quality product and service. We understand we have to validate our Ford Q1 status on a regular basis, but we have the right team in place at our plant to ensure the Ford Q1 award flag flies high for many years to come. I am proud and grateful to all of our employees who made this certification possible.”
