AMETEK VIS Earns Caterpillar SQEP Silver Level Certification 
Achievement Reflects AMETEK Commitment to Quality Performance

GRAND JUNCTION, CO – AMETEK Vehicular Instrumentation Systems (VIS) – the industry leader in custom dashboard instrument displays for heavy trucks as well as construction, military and other vehicles – has earned a Silver Level Certification in Caterpillar Inc.’s Supplier Quality Excellence Process (SQEP).

Caterpillar created the SQEP to recognize those suppliers who demonstrated their commitment to excellence and drive a “zero defects” culture within their organizations. Certification levels include Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum and reflect an order of increasing difficulty. Suppliers become SQEP certified by meeting or exceeding stringent supplier performance standards, such as product quality and shipping performance, which are measured over the course of a calendar year.

“We are proud and honored to again be recognized by Caterpillar with SQEP certification. AMETEK is a long-time supplier of vehicle instrumentation and dashboard displays to Caterpillar. Our own focus on Operational Excellence initiatives has been an excellent fit with Caterpillar and its ‘zero-defects’ culture,” Prakash Mahesh, Vice President and General Manager of AMETEK Instrumentation and Specialty Controls.

AMETEK VIS is a division of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices with annual sales of $4.0 billion. More information is available at
