The award was presented to Holmbury Ltd at the Group headquarters in Tonbridge, United Kingdom. Holmbury has been a key supplier of hydraulic couplings and valves to Caterpillar globally for over thirty years. This prestigious award is acknowledgement of Holmbury’s consistent drive for quality in all aspects of their business.
Caterpillar’s SQEP certification requires a proven track record of excellence in quality, delivery and cost, and is only awarded to those who demonstrate this level of performance on an ongoing basis. Each year, suppliers are evaluated with increasingly strict criteria for distinguishing outstanding supplier quality performance, exceptional service, capacity planning and delivery performance. The certification also demonstrates Holmbury’s commitment to collaborate with Caterpillar’s objective to implement a culture for “zero-defects” across its supply base.
James French, Managing Director at Holmbury Ltd commented: “We are immensely proud to have been awarded the gold level SQEP certification from Caterpillar. Holmbury has worked tirelessly to build a strong reputation for high quality products, supported by industry leading customer service. Our vision for the future is to focus on continual improvement, driving innovation for our customers, whilst not losing sight of our core values. This award validates our vision for the future and we look forward to collaborating closely with Caterpillar for many years to come.”
