Chrysler’s Warren Stamping Plant (WSP) became the second facility this week to receive the bronze award for its implementation of World Class Manufacturing (WCM). Indiana Transmission Plant II won recognition as a bronze facility on Tuesday.

WSP is the first Chrysler stamping plant to achieve bronze status. It’s also the seventh North American facility to earn WCM recognition.

“The employees at Warren Stamping are to be commended for their commitment to implementing World Class Manufacturing and taking an active role in supporting the plant’s goal of achieving bronze,” said Brian Harlow, Vice President and Head of NAFTA Manufacturing, Chrysler Group LLC.

“The employees at Warren Stamping are to be commended for their commitment to implementing World Class Manufacturing and taking an active role in supporting the plant’s goal of achieving bronze,” said Brian Harlow, Vice President and Head of NAFTA Manufacturing, Chrysler Group LLC. “Employee involvement is vital to the success of WCM, so having our UAW partners at both the local and international level fully engaged in this effort has been critical in making Chrysler Group’s manufacturing facilities among the best in the world.”

WSP, which began parts production in 1949, received the bronze designation just over four years after adopting the WCM operating system.

Bill Cawthon grew up in the auto industry in the 1950s. His Dad worked for Chrysler and Bill spent a number of Saturdays down on the plant floor at Dodge Main in Hamtramck. Bill is also the U.S. market correspondent for just-auto.com, a British auto industry publication, and a member of the Texas Auto Writers Association, which has named the Jeep Grand Cherokee the “SUV of Texas” several times and named the Ram 1500 as the “Truck of Texas” two years running.

Bill has owned five Plymouths (including the only 1962 “Texan”), one Dodge and one Chrysler and is still trying to figure out how to justify a Wrangler. He also has owned at least one of every 1:87 scale model of a Chrysler product. You can reach him directly at (206) 888-7324 or by using the form.
