Milton Keynes Pressings Ltd (MKP) — a supplier of metal pressings, welded assemblies and fine-limit sheet metal components to a variety of industries — has been awarded the 2019 Gold Award for the Caterpillar Supplier Quality Excellence Process (SQEP).
The awards system, set up by one of MKP’s key customers, was created as a certification programme to recognise suppliers who value its quality standard as a core element in their business.
To gain the Caterpillar Gold Award, MKP met a number of demanding performance standards, including on-time deliveries and product quality, as well as clearly demonstrating its commitment to implementing a culture of ‘zero defects’ and ensuring that the quality standards required to achieve it are maintained through all facets of the business.
MKP supplies pressings (www.mkp.co.uk

Components from MKP are incorporated in the compact high-performance 400 Series engines, which are suitable for a wide range of off-highway applications.
