Cope Presented with Caterpillar SQEP Silver Certification

For the ninth consecutive year, Cope Plastics, Inc. is proud to be re-certified by the Caterpillar Supplier Quality Excellence Process (SQEP).

On September 9, representatives from Caterpillar Inc. visited Cope’s corporate facility in Alton, IL to present their team with the Silver SQEP plaque to add to their existing milestones, which are always prominently on display.

Caterpillar created the certification program to recognize suppliers who demonstrate commitment to excellent process control, a desire for continuous improvement, and drive a zero-defects culture within their organizations. Suppliers are certified by meeting or exceeding stringent performance standards, including product quality and on time delivery.

Cope Plastics has been Caterpillar’s premier plastics supplier for five decades and received their first SQEP certification in 2011. They are pleased to continue their partnership with Caterpillar at this prestigious level. Cope has been committed to quality and continuously exceeding customer expectations for over 70 years.

“SQEP re-certification has been achieved thanks to our dedicated team here at Cope,” said Bryan Cox, Cope’s Director of Quality. “We are honored to be a part of Caterpillar’s strategic supply chain and the only plastics fabrication company in the United States to achieve this certification. Quality is more than making a quality part, it’s about how we service our customers. CAT’s SQEP requires the highest level of commitment to quality, people, products, and processes, and we have a proven track record of success.”

Cope Plastics, Inc. is a leader in plastics fabrication and distribution serving a wide range of customers. Since its inception in 1946, Cope Plastics has grown to be the supplier of choice to over 8,000 companies involved in heavy equipment, agriculture, food service, oil & gas, aerospace, medical, transportation, and retail industries, among others. Cope Plastics prides itself on its award-winning recycling program and is one of the largest women-owned businesses in the St. Louis area. The company is honored to be a certified Women Owned Business by the NWBOC since 2012.
