The Pierburg subsidiary, Pierburg S.A., Abadiano, Spain, has been awarded five stars by the European Federation of Quality Management as part of the latter's EFQM Excellence Model Awards
The EFQM award goes to companies having achieved outstanding optimization of their processes through self-analyses and critical internal reviews. Among the awardees to date are Robert Bosch GmbH with its Feuerbach plant near Stuttgart and the BMW plant in Berlin.
Each year the EFQM award goes to ten different European companies from a variety of business sectors. "We're very proud of the prize and the number of stars, given to only a few companies until now," says Javier Egurrola, General Manager of Pierburg S.A. The number of stars reflects the degree to which the company succeeds in enacting the steps recommended by EFQM.
