HUSCO’s Whitewater, WI location, one of the state’s most advanced manufacturing facilities, was recognized for its perfect quality across the prior year while supplying components to Ford’s Chihuahua, Mexico location. With HUSCO’s global commitment to best in class performance in quality, reliability, material management, engineering support and cost, combined with 100% on-time delivery, earned its recognition as one of ChEP 100 Best Managed Companies.
“The inclusion as one of ChEP 100 Best Managed Companies for 2016 acknowledges the hard work and excellent results the HUSCO Automotive team has achieved,” Gus Ramirez, HUSCO Automotive’s CEO stated, “We are honored to receive this recognition from Ford.
