Presented during the annual Jacobs Supplier Conference, the award recognizes a company that demonstrates outstanding performance primarily in the areas of quality, delivery and cost, Jacobs said.
“We are, indeed, honored by this recognition from Jacobs Vehicle Systems,” said Timothy Tang, Quarlink’s general manager. “We are always striving to provide all of our customers with the best possible service and solutions, and this award demonstrates that type of commitment is paying off in a very big way.”
Roughly 120 suppliers are reviewed every year by a cross-functional panel of Jacobs’ engineers, managers, buyers, directors and quality professionals who review performance, nominate candidates and make final selections.
Based in Tunglo Hsiang, Taiwan, Quarlink has been supplying Jacobs with precision machined components for more than 16 years, and also was named 2013 Supplier of the Year, Jacobs said. Jacobs’ engine brakes with Quarlink components are used in North America, Europe, China and the Asia Pacific region.
“We congratulate Quarlink on another outstanding year of support to the Jacobs organization,” said David Wang, director of global supply chain for Jacobs.
“They have the people and processes in place that allow for continuous improvement and effectively helps us deliver dependable, durable components that maximize the power and effectiveness in not only engine braking solutions, but also in terms of fuel efficiency and emission-reduction improvements.”
