Editorial: Hyundai Excellence

Earning the highest operating standard in the world is a uniquely rare achievement - like  winning the Triple Crown in horse racing.

Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama just earned that certification from the auto industry and we salute them.

No one producing cars on this continent has it.

Hyundai's Korean factory doesn't even have it.

This billion dollar plant here in Montgomery County is one of the most technologically advanced automotive plants in the world.

Auditors from the International Automotive Task Force who were here two months ago examined all systems here and found quality at every turn.

Not surprising.  Tour this plant and you see quality people, quality systems and a quality product.

Congratulations to everyone who works here for a job very well done!

Very impressive for our region to set a standard of excellence for the world.

Keep pushing.  Raise the bar even higher for the year ahead!
