The award was presented to Martin Hendricks, president, Global Braking and EMEA, Federal-Mogul Motorparts, and Victor Cota, Tepotzotlán braking plant manager, during a ceremony at Los Pinos, Mexico’s official presidential residence and office.

The company was presented the award in recognition of the world-class quality systems, global competitiveness and customer-focused success of its expansive automotive friction facility in Tepotzotlán, Mexico. Established in 2001, the 150,695 square-foot plant produces a broad range of premium-quality replacement brake pads and related friction products sold to original equipment customers and also marketed under Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ globally respected Wagner® brand.

Commenting on the award, Martin Hendricks, president, Global Braking and EMEA, said, “We are honored to receive the Mexico National Quality Award which reflects the hard work and dedication of our employees in Tepotzotlán.  Their commitment to quality, innovation and service enables them to consistently meet and exceed the exacting standards of the most demanding OE customers in the braking industry.  At the same time, their efforts have helped make Wagner a leading automotive brand in vehicle service facilities throughout North America and around the world.”

The National Quality Award, created in 1989 and presided over by Mexico’s National Institute of Entrepreneurship, is considered Mexico’s most prestigious honor for organizations that serve as national benchmarks for quality and competitiveness.

Past winners have included American Express, Daimler Chrysler, General Motors, IBM, and Motorola Solutions. Recipients are selected based on several strict criteria, including the precepts of the National Model for Competitiveness established by the Institute for the Promotion of Total Quality. Judges include representatives of 10 leading national organizations such as the Mexican ministries of Public Education, Labor and Social Welfare, and Tourism.
