Purolator Filters NA LLC has been recognized as a top quality supplier by Toyota for the 10th time, the most ever for any Toyota supplier, according to Purolator.

The Toyota Gold Award was presented recently at the Purolator manufacturing and distribution facility in Fayetteville, N.C. It is given to suppliers that consistently deliver excellence in quality, technical development, program management, delivery, invoicing, marketing, and warranty throughout the Toyota Quality Alliance (TQA) year.

Purolator supplies Toyota with engine oil filters for various models.

"Delivering consistent quality is the hallmark of a top-notch supplier, and at Purolator we constantly challenge our team to go the extra mile to meet and exceed our standards as well that of Toyota," says Rob Malone, CEO and president of Purolator Filters, a joint venture company owned by the Bosch Group and MANN+HUMMEL Group.

The organization committee within Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. Inc. makes the decision annually using supplier scorecards. Purolator was one of six suppliers to receive the award for various product lines. Between 1998 and 2010, Purolator Filters has received three Gold, four Platinum and three Supplier Awards from Toyota.
