Mercury Marine’s Supplier Integration Manager determined that Classic Coatings has met the requirements for graduation from the Supplier Integration Program. Graduation is based on several measures of quality improvement including SPR Quality score of 31 (out of 40) or better for three consecutive months, no line shutdowns or significant field issues for the past six months and successful closure of all SIM major strategic action items. Classic Coatings is very pleased to have been awarded this honor by Mercury Marine in December 2011. Only about 50 other Mercury Marine suppliers have ever received this award. Staff at Classic Coatings worked very hard to reach this goal. Our entire team has done a great job!
