DTNA recognizes 2017 Masters of Quality suppliers

Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) recently unveiled the 40 recipients of its 2017 Masters of Quality Supplier award, which recognizes the top quality components and services suppliers to Freightliner Trucks and Western Star.  

The annual program honors outstanding suppliers that received high scores based on quality, delivery, technology and cost performance as measured on a Balanced Scorecard basis. These suppliers are demonstrating their support to DTNA by continuously improving the quality of their products, DTNA said.

“The Masters of Quality Supplier award recognizes the partners who provide our company with critical components and services that contribute to our overall success,” said Carsten Kirchholtes, DTNA’s general manager for supply chain management and international trade compliance.

“We are proud of our industry-leading products and innovations, and our suppliers’ commitment to excellence is essential.”

DTNA is in its 31st year of recognizing suppliers with the Masters of Quality award.

“All of our suppliers are integral to DTNA continuing the highest level of manufacturing quality and efficiency,” said Sung Lee, DTNA’s general manager of operations planning and quality management. “We’re pleased not only to maintain many long-term Masters of Quality partners, but also to recognize several new suppliers who have earned this award, and who share our dedication to excellence.”
