For the eighth consecutive year, Topre America has been recognized by Honda of America for excellence in its work to supply Honda plants with quality parts.
Mike Lapham, senior manager for Honda of America automotive purchasing, attended a Topre employee meeting Tuesday morning to share the good news with the company's staff.
Lapham said Honda has 715 original equipment manufacturers and suppliers in North America, and only 45 of those received awards.
All of the awards focus on different aspects of supplying, like quality and delivery, but the Excellence in Value award indicates excellence in all of those phases, he said.
"It means you're doing really well in all categories," he said.
Lapham said there were only 18 of the 715 suppliers that received the Excellence in Value award, which puts Topre America in the top 2.5 percent of Honda of America's suppliers.
"That's really outstanding performance to be in that small of a group of suppliers," he said.
