HK Wins CRH AMAT Gold Standard Shop Award
June 7, 2018
This is the second year that the Equipment National Performance Committee (NPC) has presented this award. The Des Moines, IA shop received it for 2016 and HK received it for 2017. Each division nominates the shops they find to meet “Gold Standard” to the Equipment NPC. Once the nominations are received, the NPC and an evaluation team travel to each nominated facility and conduct a very thorough evaluation process. The process includes inspecting different aspects such as: efficiencies, cost effectiveness, contamination control, technician performance management, operational efficiencies and many other aspects of industry specific, world-class best practices. The evaluation team and Equipment NPC then determine which facility deserves to receive the award, based on overall evaluation scores and shop performances. The NPC has been continuously working on overall performance improvements and efforts on for the past five-six years, and the awards program is helping accomplish this.
