CEAT Ltd., India’s leading tyre manufacturer, received the prestigious Deming Grand Prize, making it the first tyre brand in the world to achieve this rare distinction in 2023.
The Deming Grand Prize is an illustrious honor bestowed upon organizations that have earned the Deming Prize and have consistently sustained and improved their Total Quality Management (TQM) practices for over three years. CEAT has been on its TQM journey for more than fifteen years and, in 2017, became the first tyre company outside of Japan to win the esteemed Deming Prize.
The Union of Japanese Scientists and Engineers (JUSE) established the Deming Grand Prize in 1969. Deming Grand Prize is one of the enduring quality awards it presents to recognize excellence in Total Quality Management (TQM). It is considered one of the highest honors in the field of quality management. Organizations that receive this prize have shown excellence in quality, process improvement, and a commitment to continuous improvement practices.
