The two North American awards are presented to suppliers who demonstrate excellence in operational efficiency, retail growth initiatives, parts availability, cost management and program support, PACCAR said.
Flexfab received the 2018 Proprietary Supplier of the Year Award for exceptional on-time shipping and outstanding program support.
“Flexfab’s achievement of 99.9% on-time shipment reflects their strong drive to maximize uptime for our customers and provide outstanding support to the Kenworth and Peterbilt dealer networks,” said Blanka Kopacz, PACCAR Parts director of product marketing. “We appreciate Flexfab’s ongoing partnership with PACCAR Parts and their focus on continuous improvement.”
Weller Reman received the 2018 Commodity Supplier of the Year for excellent retail sales initiatives and outstanding lead-time reduction and on-time shipping performance, PACCAR said.
“The collaboration between PACCAR Parts and Weller Reman is instrumental to providing the highest level of parts availability for our customers,” Kopacz said. “The Weller team drives excellent sales growth and customer uptime. They go the extra mile and work directly with dealers to ensure same day shipping when needed.”
The accomplishments of both suppliers contribute to “excellent” on-shelf availability for customers and provide significant value to the PACCAR dealer network, the company said.
“Supplier performance is a key factor to increasing customer satisfaction and industry-leading uptime,” said Chris Scheel, PACCAR Parts senior director of marketing. “Weller Reman and Flexfab’s commitment to excellent parts availability mirrors our own mission to provide the highest quality products, world class service and uptime for our customers.”
