Excellence in Quality Award

“Top Quality Machining, Bottom Line Results!” That is one of the building blocks of our 100+ years of machining excellence here at Ashley Ward and something we strive to achieve every day in the plant. With that in mind, we are extremely grateful and excited to announce that we received the Excellence in Quality Award at the annual Honda Power Equipment supplier meeting in June. 

Ashley Ward ranked 1 out of 77 suppliers who ship products into Honda’s Swepsonville, NC plant. Judged on three different categories, Delivery Index Per Million, Quality Index Per Million, and Weighted Warranty Index, Ashley Ward ranked first in every category of their internal performance report. Having just established the relationship on the snowblower product line in 2014, Ashley Ward has continuously improved each year to achieve this number one position. 

Everyone’s high standards for top quality is why Ashley Ward can receive a prestigious award like this. Brain Scalf the Vice President of Ashley Ward said, “It’s always nice to receive a quality award from a customer, but to receive this award from Honda is even more special given their reputation for high standards throughout the industry.”
