FCA US LLC Receives Manufacturing Leadership Award

As Jeep® dealers serving Eagle, ID and surrounding areas, we’re thrilled to tell you that FCA US LLC, the parent company of the brands we proudly represent, recently announced that it earned a Manufacturing Leadership Award. This coveted award will be presented to FCA US LLC representatives at the 13th Annual Manufacturing Leadership Awards Gala, which is part of the Manufacturing Leadership Summit scheduled to begin on June 12, 2017 in Huntington Beach, CA.

FCA US LLC earned a Manufacturing Leadership Award in the Operational Excellence Leadership category. The company earned the award for embracing and implementing World Class Manufacturing, or WCM, in its global operations.  This manufacturing philosophy focuses on the following:

  • Eliminating Waste
  • Increasing Productivity
  • Improving Quality
  • Improving Safety

The goal of WCM is to engage employees to provide ideas about how their jobs and workplaces can be improved and involve them in implementing their suggestions. In recent years, WCM has become the motivation for significant changes in production facilities throughout the world. To date, four FCA US LLC plants in North America have achieved silver status and 16 others have earned bronze status in the WCM program.

“On behalf of all the hard-working men and women who come to work every day to build award-winning products, we are humbled to receive this award,” said Brian Harlow, head of manufacturing, FCA – North America. “The human element is at the center of WCM and has become a way of life for all of our employees around the globe. WCM resides in the employees’ hearts, heads, and hands to imagine the future and create a better way to run the business. The company’s success depends on their involvement and we could not succeed in implementing WCM without the cooperation of our unions worldwide. It’s truly a team effort.”
