Mahindra Powerol wins Deming Prize for 2014

 Mahindra Powerol, the Mahindra Group’s off-grid power generation and energy solutions business, received the Deming Prize at a glittering ceremony held in Tokyo. Mahindra Powerol was the only company from India to win this global distinction this year.
The Deming Prize is a global quality award instituted by the Japanese Union for Scientists and Engineers (JUSE) that recognises both individuals for their contributions to the field of total quality management (TQM) and businesses that have successfully implemented TQM. It is the oldest, most widely recognised quality award in the world. Prior illustrious recipients include Toyota Motor Corp., Tata Steel, Mahindra Tractor Division and Mahindra Swaraj Division.
Speaking on the award, Ashok Sharma, Chief Executive, Agri & Allied Businesses, said, “We are greatly honoured to have received this prestigious international award. The Deming Prize bears testimony to a long journey in customer centricity, quality focus and change management at Powerol. We have faced several business challenges since inception and have been able to convert these adversities into opportunities by promoting the TQM approach across our organisation and for our business partners.”
P. Palaniappan, Senior Vice President, Powerol, said, “The Deming Prize is a testament to Powerol’s agility and ability to respond quickly to the dynamic market scenario. It also highlights Powerol’s highly successful ‘Lean Asset Model’ of manufacturing and vindicates the TQM principles that the business has been practising since 2007.”
