Saltillo silvered

by David Zatz on

The Saltillo South Engine Plant, which makes Pentastar V6 engines, has gained silver status in the World Class Manufacturing system. It is the fourth North American plant to hit the milestone, along with Dundee Engine (four-cylinders), Toledo (Cherokee and Wrangler), and Windsor (minivans). Trenton and Mack Avenue, which also make the Pentastar, is still on bronze.

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.
