“For the year 2016 TECMA has selected CIVCO to receive the BEST OF THE BEST AWARD in recognition of the TECMA client company that has the best work environment.  This was based on a survey among the employees and collaborators of CIVCO.  In recognition of its constant attention to high quality standards of leadership we are proud to announce that CIVCO has been recognized with the TECMA BEST OF THE BEST award as the best work climate of all Tecma client companies in Mexico for the year 2016.  Rafael Urquide has been a key element and is doing an excellent job by implementing high standards of ethics, values and work culture.  Congratulations to all of the CIVCO team.”

Mike McVey, Civco Vice President of Manufacturing accepted the award on behalf of CIVCO:

Jose, thank you for sharing this news with me!  CIVCO is extremely proud of what has been achieved by Rafael Urquide and the entire team at the Juarez facility.  It shows not only in the excellent results they achieve, but even more by how focused, how engaged, and by how much energy they bring to their workplace.

Rafael Urquide has developed and is leading a team of game changers – they don’t accept the status quo, and they challenge all of us to be better at what we do, both by raising the bar and also by bringing solutions to real challenges we experience.

I thank you and the entire TECMA team not only for recognizing this team for their excellence, but for listening to their needs, supporting them and ensuring they have the opportunity to be “the best of the best!”

I look forward to seeing you, if possible, on my next visit to Juarez in February.


Mike McVey
Vice President of Manufacturing
