Accuride Corporation has received Gold and Silver Supplier Awards from Thomas Built Buses for its performance in the areas of engineering, quality, logistics, warranty and purchasing.
A Thomas Built supplier for more than a decade, Accuride has been honored for the third consecutive year that Thomas Built has recognized Accuride as a high-performing supplier, including naming the company its “Supplier of the Year” in 2012.
“Accuride is proud of this recognition by Thomas Built Buses,” Accuride President and CEO Rick Dauch says. “We were humbled to be its ‘Supplier of the Year’ for 2012 and are pleased to continue our tradition of award-winning performance on the metrics that matter to Thomas Built.”
Accuride was among 18 suppliers to receive the manufacturer’s 2013 Gold Award, while Accuride’s Gunite business was one of 36 Silver Supplier Award winners.
“Our recent equipment upgrades and implementation of LEAN systems across our operations and supply chain reflect Accuride’s commitment to deliver dependable quality, delivery and lead-time performance for Thomas Built and our customers throughout North America,” Dauch says.
