Large supplier group honored by Paccar

Paccar says more than 200 suppliers have met or exceeded the OEM’s annual rigorous “10 ppm” quality standard.

To be recognized, Paccar says a supplier must operate near perfection – 10 or fewer defective parts for every million parts shipped to Paccar. These suppliers must also meet performance criteria for on-time delivery and support of Paccar’s operating divisions and their customers.

“Paccar works closely with the highest quality automotive and commercial vehicle suppliers in developing and producing our vehicles and support systems. We recognize the effort and commitment required to meet our quality and performance expectations, and congratulate our 2016 10 ppm award winners for their achievement,” said Debra Poppas, Paccar vice president of global quality.

“We appreciate the value created for Paccar and our customers by these 216 elite suppliers,” adds Darrin Siver, Paccar senior vice president. “These suppliers’ commitment to quality and support of Paccar’s engineering, manufacturing and aftermarket processes complement our ability to produce the highest quality trucks in the industry.”
