MetoKote Corp.'s Huber Heights, Ohio, facility was among the top service suppliers honored at the 16th annual American Honda Supplier Conference recently held in Toronto. Forty-nine of the more than 300 suppliers in attendance were recognized for outstanding key performance measures for service parts suppliers. American Honda evaluates suppliers monthly in the areas of quality, value, and on-time delivery and annually recognizes those with outstanding performance on the combined performance in all three categories.
The facility has supplied American Honda with service sheet metal parts including bulkheads and bumper assemblies for more than 20 years. Many of the parts require specialized labeling and packaging and are sent directly to the Honda distribution warehouse. Serving more than 60 customers around the greater Dayton area and across the U.S., the plant has two electrocoating monorail systems and one liquid paint line. Minor subassembly, custom packaging, bar coding, and hem seal operations also are performed on finished parts.
