Ascend receives award

Ascend Performance Materials has received the General Motors 2020 Supplier Quality Excellence Award for its Pensacola polyamide 66 plant. The award recognizes GM suppliers who meet or exceed the company’s rigorous quality performance criteria and support multiple functions across GM’s organization.

The Pensacola plant is the largest integrated polyamide 66 production facility in the world and produces materials used to make parts that improve the safety, performance and fuel efficiency of automobiles, from fasteners and electrical connectors to airbags and radiator end tanks.

“Customer-focused is one of our core values at Ascend and it means that everything we do is in service to our customers,” said Phil Jeszke, automotive segment lead at Ascend. “The strength of our relationship with GM is built on partnerships throughout the production chain focused on quality and performance, from the materials to the design and manufacturing.”

This year’s award marks the second consecutive year Ascend has been recognized by GM.
