“We’ve only been working with NMC for a little over a year. That’s why this is so unique.” explained Trevor Medley, Assistant Manager of Purchasing at Hi-Lex Controls, Inc. “We have 118 individual suppliers and NMC was selected for cost reductions.”
On October 22, 2013, NMC’s Craig Nollar and Kevin Anderson attended the 2013 Hi-Lex Supplier Conference. The recognition came as a surprise, although they knew that Jerry Fix and NMC’s great team of associates had a flawless performance on the GMT900 program over the course of the year. NMC “took the bull by the horns” when it came to potential capacity challenges, making sure Hi-Lex experienced absolutely zero quality issues or delivery complications. This is memorable circumstance where the people that do the heavy work are being honored and recognized. For approximately a year and a half, NMC has been handling the slitting, packaging and shipping of 100 to 120k per week of the GMT900 products.
Hi-Lex determines their outstanding suppliers based on 3 criteria: cost reduction, delivery performance, and quality performance. “NMC wouldn’t have been considered if they hadn’t performed above and beyond, exceeded our expectations in all 3 categories, “ added Medley.
Congratulations and thanks to all associates for a job well done.
