GKN Sinter Metals has received a quality award from automotive supplier Jatco for its Japanese business.

Jatco, which also makes automotive transmissions, has partnered with GKN since 2009.

Each year, Jatco awards companies that produce over a 15 month period with a defect rate of zero parts per million (PPM).

'This is a great encouragement for all of us who are working endlessly to deliver on increased customer requests,' said Leo Zhang, sales and marketing manager, GKN Sinter Metals.
