Major awards and accolades

1998 and 1999
General Motors Supplier of the Year
GM presented AIKOKU ALPHA this award from among its 30,000 suppliers for outstanding overall performance throughout the year in quality, technology, price, and service. Only 181 companies in 22 countries received the award in 1999—and AIKOKU ALPHA was one of five such companies in Japan.
The award specifically recognized AIKOKU ALPHA’s high-quality turbine shafts and sun gear shaft forming, and the company was further acclaimed for its cost reduction efforts upon signing a three-year contract with GM.
Ford Motor Company Q1 Award
Q1 stands for “quality number one”.
Our whole division worked as a team to produce a quality manual to boost quality. As a result of these efforts, we put together a quality management system over the course of two years and were awarded for our efforts. We improved quality, created a basic manual, and laid the groundwork for our future QS-9000 certification.
First approved supplier to the GM Hydra-Matic Corporation (now General Motors)
One of the most important properties of turbine shafts is durability. The reliability of our testing equipment has been certified after undergoing stringent inspection precision and testing method standards based on the GM test manual. AIKOKU ALPHA was the first company in Japan to receive this certification. Our vacuum technology was established as a result of this turbine shaft.
