Ford Honors Sewells Group at Its 18th Annual World Excellence Awards

DEARBORN, Mich., June 15, 2016 – Ford honored Sewells Group, a wholly owned subsidiary of service and technology solutions provider MSX International, as a top-performing global supplier at its 18th annual World Excellence Awards. Sewells Group was presented with a Silver Award by Hau Thai-Tang, Ford Motor Company group vice president, global purchasing. Sewells Group was acquired by MSXI, the 2013 Ford World Excellence Award Corporation of the Year for Supplier Diversity Development winner, in March to form a single, global, comprehensive services solution for automakers and their dealer networks.

“There is no higher compliment than to be recognized for excellence by those you serve,” said Kyle Dickey, Sewells-MSXI VP of Ford Academy. “The entire Sewells Group team is proud of its growing relationship with Ford and truly appreciates this award, which underscores our heritage of integrity, commitment, innovation and continuous improvement.”

“Ford’s World Excellence Awards allow us to recognize suppliers who demonstrate a strong commitment to quality, performance and teamwork,” said Thai-Tang. “Sewells Group has helped Ford deliver a breakthrough year, and we are thankful they are a part of our One Ford team.”

Fifty-seven awards were presented to suppliers who exceed company expectations and distinguish themselves from their peers by achieving the highest levels of global excellence in 11 categories.

  • Quality, green, safe and smart categories for suppliers who demonstrate leadership in Ford’s primary brand pillars

  • Special recognition for suppliers that delivered results that exceed expectations
  • Lincoln Luxury, which recognizes a supplier helping transform Lincoln to be the luxury vehicle of choice
