Toledo turns silver

by David Zatz on

The Jeep plants in Toledo, Ohio are the first FCA US facilities to earn silver status in the “World Class Manufacturing” quality measurement system. Toledo makes Cherokees and Wranglers in separate facilities.


Ten North American facilities have a bronze designation.  During an audit, up to five points are awarded for technical pillars such as safety, workplace organization, logistics, and the environment, and for ten managerial pillars such as commitment, clarity of objectives, allocation of people, and motivation.

David Zatz founded Allpar in 1998 (based on a site he had begun in 1993-94), after years of writing reviews for retail trades. He has been quoted by the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Detroit News, and USA Today. Before making Allpar a full-time career, he was a consultant in organizational psychology.
