George Westinghouse Quality Award

Monday 16th June, 2014

Napier Turbochargers have been awarded the George Westinghouse Award for Quality in recognition of improvements made as a part of our paperless deployment in shop floor production areas. Napier have implemented systems to ensure that all job sheets and working instructions are provided digitally through a series of screens located in all work areas.

George Westinghouse was an American engineer and electrical pioneer who invented the railway air brake using a system based on compressed air. The Westinghouse system was universally adopted and the Westinghouse Air Brake Company became known as Wabtec Corporation in 1999 after a merger with Motive Power Industries. This history of engineering innovation is a key ingredient of the Wabtec success story, a fact which remains true to this day and is recognised through the George Westinghouse Quality Award.

Ewen Hamilton, Sales and Marketing Manager at Napier Turbochargers said "We are delighted to receive the George Westinghouse Quality Award for the deployment of our paperless production system. This type of ongoing innovation is essential to maintain Napier's position of the leading global provider of industrial turbochargers."
