J.D. Power Plant Quality Awards, Oshawa in top three
The J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study, recognized GM Canada's Oshawa Assembly with the Silver Plant Assembly Line Quality Award in North/South America. These awards come as a result of the Plant’s commitment to quality and a solid track record. Ontario Motor Sales is most proud to reside in Oshawa for over 90 years where the award winning Chevrolet and Cadillac vehicles are manufactured.
Kevin Williams, president and managing director of GM of Canada said, "Being recognized as one of the top plants in North and South America shows the dedication of our employees and a strong drive toward continuous improvement. Our employees work hard every day to build the best quality cars and trucks for our customers."
Overall, General Motors built on a strong performance in last year's J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study, placing about 50 percent of its vehicles in the top three of their respective segments with a company-best eight segment awards.
Since 1999, Oshawa Assembly has earned four Gold, four Silver and one Bronze J.D. Power and Associates Plant Awards.
