Hematite Celebrates Q1 Designation

Hematite Celebrates Q1 Designation

Congratulations to Hematite on achieving their Q1 designation from Ford Canada in June. This designation represents a consensus on good management practices, with the aim of ensuring that the supplier organization can consistently deliver products or services that will meet and exceed the customer’s quality requirements.

To be recognized as a Ford Motor Company Q1 supplier, vendors must achieve a high level of performance for six consecutive months prior to being awarded with Q1 Certification and maintain that level on an ongoing basis. During the evaluation process, Ford and the supplier agree on metrics for achievement and Ford meets with the supplier to continually assess progress. It opens the door to future business for Hematite. 

The auto parts manufacturer, located at 46 Plant Farm Road, Brantford, produces compression molding and thermo forming components for international customers, as well as die cutting, lamination and assembly.  Visit to learn more about this local manufacturer.
