Walther earns DTNA's Masters of Quality award

Walther Engineering and Manufacturing Company (WEMC) recently received the Masters of Quality Award for 2017 from Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA).

WEMC is on an elite list of DTNA suppliers who have met the high standards for quality, delivery, technology and cost performance required to be recognized with this prestigious annual award.  WEMC met DTNA’s criteria of continuous quality improvement, support of DTNA and overall performance during 2017. 

“We’re extremely pleased to be recognized by DTNA within the short period of time we have been supplying them with hydraulic brake and wheel end components,” said Brent Armentrout, Walther EMC’s vice president of business development.

“We value DTNA’s business and are committed to maintaining the positive relationship with this leading truck OEM.”
In 2016, WEMC began supplying DTNA with the Dura-Force Hydraulic Brake System, along with hub and rotor assemblies for Daimler medium duty walk-in vans. The 2017 Masters of Quality Award is the first for the company.
WEMC’s Dura-Force Hydraulic Brake System includes calipers, torque plates, hubs, rotors and dust shields.  The opposed four-piston design reduces drag, offering substantial improvement to lining life versus pin-slide calipers, and the top-loading linings do not require caliper removal for easy lining changes.

The hub and rotor assemblies supplied to DTNA include WEMC’s CR-ABS corrosion resistant rotors with a plated ABS ring that inhibits corrosion commonly leading to ABS signal loss.
