ESCANABA — Caterpillar Inc. announced that Engineered Machined Products (EMP) of Escanaba has been awarded the Caterpillar Platinum Certification, and new precision machining business.

In making the announcement, Ernie Reyes, operations manager – engine and transmission procurement at Caterpillar, Inc., informed a meeting of EMP employees that ”I am pleased to represent Caterpillar in honoring the employees of EMP, and to recognize the performance of the EMP Team in achieving Caterpillar’s Platinum Certification.”

“This achievement represents Caterpillar’s highest global supplier rating for outstanding supplier quality, and the EMP team has earned and is deserving of this prestigious designation,” he added.
