SEOUL, South Korea (Sept. 17, 2015) — Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) recently honored Nexen Tire Corp. with its “Outstanding Quality Performance Award” at an awards ceremony Sept. 15 at the Imperial Palace Hotel in Seoul.
FCA evaluates technical skills, quality, and brand value in order to give recognition to the most outstanding suppliers each year, the company said. Last year, FCA recognized Nexen Tire as an “excellent supplier” in the Chemical APAC Export sector during the 2014 APAC Supplier Town Hall and Awards Ceremony held in Shanghai.
FCA bestows its Outstanding Supplier Quality awards annually to what it deems its most outstanding plants for manufacturing quality products among global suppliers. This year Nexen's plants in Changnyeong and Yangsan, South Korea, were recognized.
“It is a great honor to be recognized by FCA again this year. These achievements are a testament to our performance-driven technology and the outstanding quality of our products,” said Nexen Tire.
Nexen Tire supplies OE tires for various FCA's models, including the Fiat 500x crossover, the Chrysler 200 midsize sedan and the Dodge Ram 3500 pickup truck. Most recently, the company signed a contract to supply the Fiat Ducato, a commercial van.
