TR Fastening’s Malaysian business, TR Powersteel, has been honoured with the title of ‘Best Quality Supplier’ by Boon Siew Honda, the automotive giant’s assembler of 2-wheeler motorcycles. TR Powersteel (PSEP) has been supporting Boon Siew Honda (BSH) for many years, and today supplies parts for nine different motorcycle models.
With 92 active components being supplied to BSH, PSEP’s role extends beyond the provision of parts to a much more complex logistical task. Delivery is not just based on the supply of individual parts, as the packages are separated based on models and variants and delivered straight to the production lines at BSH. The award for Best Quality Supplier recognises PSEP’s ability to combine logistics, teamwork and coordination in order to meet BSH’s high expectations in terms of delivery times and quality standards.
Honda is again re-establishing itself in Malaysia as a premier motorcycle manufacturer, TR said, having increased its market share of 26.2% for the financial year ending 31 March 2017. The firm has set its sights on achieving the no. 1 spot in the sector, and relies on its suppliers including PSEP to support and aid this ambition.
Charlie Foo, MD of TR Asia, commented: “It’s fantastic to be given this honour by such a valued and high profile client as Boon Siew Honda. At TR Powersteel we pride ourselves on our commitment to delivering the highest standards of quality, service and accuracy, and to be recognised for this is hugely rewarding. We are excited about continuing our journey alongside Honda as it pursues further success in the Asian automotive market.”
