The Dem­ing Prize is the old­est and most widely rec­og­nized qual­ity award in the world. This prize is awarded to com­pa­nies that have es­tab­lished TQM in their business oper­a­tions. Ashok Ley­land Pant­na­gar has be­come the first truck and bus plant in the world and also the only CV man­u­fac­turer out­side of Ja­pan to win the Dem­ing Prize.

Re­ceiv­ing the Dem­ing Prize in Ja­pan, Vinod K. Dasari, Manag­ing Di­rec­tor, Ashok Ley­land, said, “It is in­deed a proud mo­ment for all of us at Ashok Ley­land to re­ceive this cov­eted prize. Be­ing the first truck and bus plant in the world and the only CV man­u­fac­turer out­side of Ja­pan to win this prize, adds an­other feather to the com­pany’s achieve­ments of de­liv­er­ing in­dus­try firsts. Hous­ing the lat­est tech­nol­ogy and pro­cesses, our Pant­na­gar plant is a fully-in­te­grated plant ca­pa­ble of man­u­fac­tur­ing all fu­ture-ready prod­ucts across trucks and buses. Con­sis­tent qual­ity, tech­nol­ogy, in­no­va­tion and ro­bust pro­cesses are the pil­lars which have helped us garner in­ter­na­tional recog­ni­tion, cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion, and help us de­liver on our brand prom­ise of ‘Aapki Jeet, Ha­mari Jeet’.” Ac­cord­ing to R Si­vane­san, Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent, Qual­ity, Sourc­ing and Sup­ply Chain, Ashok Ley­land,“We at Ashok Ley­land have al­ways fo­cused in­tensely on qual­ity pro­cesses and cus­tomeror­i­ented ap­proach with ef­fi­cient peo­ple man­age­ment. With large and strate­gic in­vest­ments in tech­nol­ogy and qual­ity, and a young and en­er­getic work­force, the es­tab­lish­ment of the Pant­na­gar plant was an im­por­tant step in our ambition to be­come a world-leader in the global com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle in­dus­try.”

The Dem­ing Prize was es­tab­lished in 1951 by the Ja­panese Union of Sci­en­tists and En­gi­neers (JUSE) to honor W. Edwards Dem­ing, who con­trib­uted greatly to Ja­pan’s pro­lif­er­a­tion of sta­tis­ti­cal qual­ity con­trol af­ter World War II.
