SP Metal Forgings proudly announces that it was the recipient of Toyota South Africa Motors’ Supplier Award for its achievement in cost management. The award-giving ceremony was held at Toyota in Durban on Wednesday, 19 March 2014.

Since its acquisition of the Uitenhage-based company Guestro Forging & Machining, from Dorbyl in 2010, SP Metal Forgings has been supplying Toyota South Africa Motors (TSAM) with wheel hub forgings for their Innovative International Multi-purpose Vehicle (IMV).

The superior quality and cost-effectiveness of the forgings did not go unnoticed, as Toyota South Africa recognised the positive impact that the product had on its business and rewarded SP Metal Forgings for outstanding work.

This significant achievement brought immense pride and exuberance to the SP Metal Forgings team. Accepting the award on behalf of his company, SP Metal Forgings Managing Director, Ken Manners, said, “We feel extremely honoured and proud to receive this award from a prestigious company like Toyota.”
