SAF-HOLLAND announced that its Muskegon, Michigan, facility has won the prestigious Masters of Quality Award for 2007 from Daimler Trucks North America, Freightliner Custom Chassis Division.
The Muskegon facility, which has been manufacturing Neway brand air-ride suspensions for almost 60 years for heavy-duty vehicles, was one of only 48 suppliers chosen to receive the award from over 1,800 suppliers. Since 1987, Daimler has evaluated suppliers on more than 100 criteria, encompassing quality, delivery, continuous improvement and customer support.
Dale Barker and Leo Connolly of Daimler, at a plant-wide ceremony October 16, presented the Masters of Quality Award to SAF-HOLLAND’s Muskegon management and employees.
“SAF-HOLLAND places an extremely high value on quality of products and processes,” stated John Wieringa, Vice President, Quality and Environmental Systems. “It is gratifying to receive this award in recognition of the hard work of our employees. But, we won’t stop here. Our continuous improvement objective is to be recognized by all of our customers for quality and service.”
