Family business Key Plastics Ltd gets its second Platinum award
KEY Plastics Limited, based on the Killarney Road in Bray, has just been awarded a second Platinum award from telecommunications company CommScope.
The award was presented to the company last week in their premises in Bray.
This award follows hot on the heels of their 2017 Platinum award presented to the Company last year.
Speaking at the award-giving Ciaran Burke, CommScope’s Vice President of Operations Quality, EMEA and India, said: ‘Key Plastics has been a strong partner to CommScope for many years now and has always responded when needed.
‘They have supported CommScope with both toolmaking and injection moulding competencies, not only regionally but also internationally.’
The objective of the CommScope 10 Point Strategy programme is to continuously monitor, improve and sustain manufacturing standards of highest level at suppliers’ manufacturing locations.
This ensures the supplier is identifying gaps based on 10 Key Performance Indicators (KPI).
This program is also the basis for recognising and rewarding the CommScope Global Supply Base.
Thomas Purcell, Systems Quality Manager at Key Plastics said: ‘Awards such as this Platinum award in CommScope’s 10 Point Strategy Supplier Recognition Program reflect the effort and investment the Key Plastics team is making in not just giving the customer what they want but partnering with them to provide a Value-Added product and service solution.’
