L Ganesh, Chairman of the Chennai-based Rane Group, has been conferred with the prestigious Deming Award, one of the longest-running and highest recognitions globally. The prestigious award is in recognition of his outstanding contribution in dissemination and promotion (overseas) of Total Quality Management (TQM)

Receiving the honour in Japan, L Ganesh is the third Indian and fifth globally to be bestowed with this prestigious award for his contributions. TVS Motor Co chairman Venu Srinivasan was conferred with the Deming Award for TQM in 2019.

Commenting on being the recipient of the Deming Award, L Ganesh said: “I am pleased to receive this prestigious award.  The Rane Group embarked on the TQM journey in the year 2000 under the leadership of Mr. L. Lakshman who was then the Chairman. Commencing from 2003, five of our Rane Companies won the Deming Prize and three of our Group companies went on to win Deming Grand Prize. It has been a phenomenal journey and I consider myself fortunate to have been part of the same. The benefits to the Rane Companies have been significant. We have also tried to disseminate TQM practices to our suppliers and shared this knowledge through many forums and to other Corporates in India. I dedicate this award to all our past and current employees”.

The Deming Prize is an annual award presented to organizations and individuals that have implemented Total Quality Management (TQM) catering to its management philosophy, scope, the scale of business, type, and management environment. Established in 1951, the award was instituted to pay tribute to W. Edwards Deming, who made a significant contribution to the spread of statistical quality control in Japan, following World War II.

The Deming Distinguished Service Award is an award given to individuals who have made outstanding contributions in the dissemination and promotion of TQM (whose primary activities are outside Japan). The winner receives the Deming Medal with an accompanying Certificate of Merit from the Deming Prize Committee.

The Rane Group, which is engaged primarily in manufacturing auto components, is a preferred supplier to major OEMs in India and abroad. Through its group companies, it provides steering and suspension systems, friction materials, valvetrain components, occupant safety systems, light metal casting products and connected mobility solutions.
