Program standards were enhanced July 1, 2008, to include more stringent requirements.
The newest MVPs for the fourth quarter of 2008 are: General Body Metroplex, Arlington, TX; Godwin Mfg Co Inc, Dunn, NC; Interlift Inc, Cerritos, CA; Western Cascade Truck, Tank & Equipment, Tukwila, WA.
"We congratulate these members who have demonstrated compliance to key quality standards and for building better relationships between distributors and manufacturers, and between suppliers and their customers,” said NTEA Executive Director Jim Carney. “With the recent introduction of updated criteria, we have raised the bar of the MVP program to even higher standards which should impact the quality efforts of our members and industry to an even greater extent.”
