Metaldyne receive special recognition from Ford for 11th consecutive year

05/09/2014
For the 11th year in a row, Data Interchange’s customer Metaldyne has received a special recognition award from automotive giant, Ford. The award acknowledges their outstanding performance record; for example, since 2003, Metaldyne has achieved a record of zero parts per million defects and a 100% on-time delivery record. 
 
The Valencia-based plant has been using Data Interchange solutions since 2000, initially to transact EDI document exchange with Ford. Starting with a connection between Data Interchange’s EDI order processing system, Darwin, and Ford, Metaldyne have continued to grow their business revenues. In 2011, Metaldyne selected Data Interchange’s Dinet Integration Network to provide managed connectivity to Ford.

Data Interchange’s solutions have played a key part in Metaldyne’s success and recognition from Ford. David Benede,  Purchasing, MP&L and IT Manager at Metaldyne, said, “The ease of use and quality of Data Interchange solutions has allowed us to achieve such great results over the past 11 years. Their software is more than just that to us; it’s a vital part of our business successes.”

Head of Data Interchange’s Iberian Sales, Juan Antonio Cobos, added: “We are very proud to be supporting the successes of customers like Metaldyne.”
