Fontaine Fifth Wheel has received the Masters of Quality Award from Daimler Trucks of North America. The award honors the top component and service suppliers to DTNA’s Freightliner and Western Star brand trucks.
“Receiving this award is a true honor,” Buck Buchanan, Fontaine Fifth Wheel president, said. “Especially when you consider that less than 5% of DTNAs large supplier base qualified for this prestigious award."
The recognized suppliers demonstrate dedication to continuous improvement of the quality of their products, support of DTNA, and overall performance.
“Every Fontaine employee played a role earning this honor,” Paige Petroni, VP of sales and marketing for Fontaine, said. “This award is a result of the cross-functional efforts that we have made to make sure that Fontaine provides the best possible product quality and customer service in the industry."
Fontaine supplies No-Slack fifth wheels to DTNA. The exclusive No-Slack design automatically self-adjusts the lock to allow for trailer kingpin size variances. The precise No-Slack kingpin fit reduces shock inputs into the frame for a smoother ride, lower maintenance costs and longer component life, according to Fontaine.
