Autoliv Received a Training Excellence Award
RJG recently presented its Training Excellence Award to Kevin Fox, Plant Manager at Autoliv’s Tremonton, UT facility. Autoliv was chosen for this award because of its dedication to improving the processing consistency by implementing a standardized training program for employees. They now have six Certified Master Molders on staff at the Tremonton facility and eight at the Ogden facility. Kevin Fox, Plant Manager at the Tremonton facility said, “From a cultural perspective our goal was to have a standard control process with a no adjust policy.  RJG training has provided us with the ability to have a standard consistent message that anyone from our facility who takes their training can adopt.”  Autoliv is running at their lowest ever PPM, which they directly attribute to the RJG Training.
