Winona PVD Coatings in Warsaw, Indiana, won the 2016 Quality Plant of the Year award from Quality magazine.

 

The company was established in 2006 and coats wheels with a bright finish for Ford's F-150, along with Hyundai, Nissan and BMW. The company focuses on quality, continuous improvement, and high-technology manufacturing—the coatings process is so automated that wheels are not touched by human hands in the six hours it takes to produce them.

 

In the past year, the company tripled its output and workforce. Construction of the original 66,000-square-foot facility started in early 2007 and production began in 2008. The production equipment was designed under the direction of Winona PVD’s engineering team to ensure the highest quality production possible. Six years later Winona PVD has expanded to a second line housed in a 68,000 square foot addition and a third production line in a new 101,000 square foot building across the street. Winona PVD is growing rapidly to meet demand for their Bright and Black G-Chrome finish.

 

Quality magazine points out that Winona PVD Coatings takes quality so seriously that out of the almost 1.5 million wheels shipped in the past 10 years, the company has seen the number of returns in the single digits.
