AUBURN HILLS — Chrysler Group LLC’s Trenton Engine Complex has been awarded bronze status for its results in implementing World Class Manufacturing. Trenton becomes the fifth North American facility to achieve the first World Class Manufacturing award milestone.
World Class Manufacturing is a methodology that focuses on reducing waste, increasing productivity, and improving quality and safety in a systematic and organized way. It engages the workforce to provide and implement suggestions on how to improve their jobs and their plants.
The bronze status is awarded after earning a minimum of 50 points in 10 technical and 10 managerial pillars by demonstrating clear World Class know-how and competence through employee-conducted pillar presentations and a review of projects that have been expanded across the shop floor. Trenton earned a score of 52.
“We are very proud of the dedication our Trenton employees have shown in accelerating the rate of improvement in their plant in order to achieve bronze,” said Mauro Pino, vice president. “Together with our UAW partners, Chrysler Group is demonstrating its commitment to making our manufacturing facilities among the best in the world.”
