"We appreciate your help very much ! From my side I don't think anything could have went better !!! You should be extremely proud of your team."
"I would like to thank the entire team at Proper for your support in last week's samples. I feel that this was a huge accomplishment to get parts off all of the tools last week. I also want everyone at Proper to know that I understand the long hours and dedication that was involved in making this happen, and that I really appreciate it."
"I want to thank you and all your team members for the excellent job everyone has done on this Inteva program. With emphasis on the IP, from day 1 this tool has been under the watchful eye of GM. Sending in their tooling expert along with their global tool analysist to show us how we can improve on timing only to go back to their upper management and tell them there is nothing more that can be done."
"GM was here at start up of the tool and did comment on how we pulled this first shot date off and the quality of the part. "I want to thank you on the excellent job" were his exact words." "I was asked about Proper by a company since they know of our involvement in the mold industry. Easy enough for me I could openly tell them my honest opinion (that Proper is probably one of the two best mold shops I have known, worldwide)."
"We are very pleased with the first tryouts we have made the last couple of days. PGI has done an excellent job holding or improving the timelines and making almost perfect parts at first sampling. Thank you for your support to finish this program as successful as it has been."
"I wanted to take this time say Thank you to you and your team. It took a big effort to get these tools to this level with the timing that you had to hit. Your guys were very professional and worked very well together as a team. I hope to share the same success on our other tools."
"I would like to congratulate the entire team for a very successful start to the Honda SZNA Program. We met with Honda Management and with Honda Prototype on Friday - Both groups thanked everyone for the effort and success on the design completion, meeting the tooling delivery date, which they thought we may miss due to the tight timing, the quality of the first parts and how well they fit the vehicle, and also the Quality Review which took place at “PGI”* a week ago. This is usually a 4 to 5 hour review, and we were prepared and passed inspection in only 1.5 hours." "Again we have impressed the customer early in the program, and I thank all of you for your efforts. Lets keep building on this momentum to have a great Production Program and Launch as well."
"Without the extraordinary efforts of “PGI”* we would not have been able to accomplish such rave reviews on our overhead console, or the vehicle as a whole. The strength of the program management, engineering and shop floor at “PGI”* made all of the timing and quality come through. Thank you to all of the team members involved."
"Just wanted to let you know what we did today with the samples you ran on the 3845 & 3846. We welded the substrates with no adjustments to the tooling or machine parameters, we then ran the parts down the assembly line with no issues and we burst the part at 8.1 bar! This is a very good result! You did a very nice job with these tools and please pass on my appreciation to your team! We look forward to getting the tools here for our first runs in KY. I think our plant people will also be appreciative of your efforts."
"I know that our 100% design reviews can be a bit grueling. And doing them on 6 tools for 3 days straight is even tough for me. But I would like to congratulate yourself, Matt Carson, Doug Draca, and all of the designers supporting this effort."
"It is not often that we experience the customer focus and responsiveness that we witnessed this week at Proper."
"We were extremely impressed with the group’s attention to detail for our tool design and construction standards. I was especially impressed by the communication within the design group. If any detail should have been overlooked, it was always corrected not only on the tool in question, but also on every other design before the next review. These guys really know how to make it happen."
"Qualities likes these are what will keep Proper as one of General Motors best suppliers."
"I would like to thank “PGI”* and specifically yourself for the great support we received over the weekend. The quick turn around to resolve the issue was impressive. I look forward to continue this level of business relation between Takata and “PGI"
"I just wanted to extend my deepest thanks to your entire team for a job well done. I appreciate all the effort you put forward to host our team and all the preparation that went it making this an excellent day for our senior staff. Many commented to me that they truly felt like they learned a lot today. Geoff, I really appreciated your perspective on the globalization efforts and the data on benchmarking. I feel the time spend today has taken our leadership to a higher level of understanding of what we do and the impact we can have on GM’s quality and cost structure. They are also more familiar with “PGI”* and all left with a very favorable impression of your shop. Several commented on how clean it was and that they never expected to see a tool shop at that level of cleanliness. I know a lot went in to getting it there and I wanted you to know I appreciated it. You guys are a top notch outfit and I appreciate the personal and business relationship we enjoy. Please let your team know how much I appreciated all their effort."
"Your boys hit another “HOME RUN” on the 5457-200 tool! With true First shot parts in KY that have been welded & assembled, the parts appear to be dead-on in all dimensions based on what we have seen today!"
"Very nice job, please pass on my congratulations and appreciation!"
"Thank you for all your hard work getting this timing issue resolved with the 921 BSM program and keeping it on schedule. This type of teamwork and dedication is what Lexamar is looking for from our suppliers."
"“PGI”* has gone beyond the line of duty by sticking their neck out for us and maintaining the timing on this program. Information was delayed from one of our suppliers for a week. “PGI”* notified us if the date was not met there would be a day to day slip in timing. Greg promised to me that timing would not slip due to this issue and they would proceed without the required information based on my request. Greg and “PGI”* have held true to their word, the program is on track and on time."
"Please thank everyone at “PGI”* from all of us at Lexamar."
“Thanks to you and your team at “PGI”* for your support with the tool tryout. Honda was also appreciative of the efforts required to get parts in their hands. Please extend our appreciation to your team.”
