Hayes Lemmerz International, Inc. received Wabash National’s 2011 Supply Chain Leadership and Performance Pinnacle Supplier Award.
It is one of 16 supplier-recognition awards presented by Wabash National at its annual supplier conference and comes less than a year after Hayes Lemmerz began supplying powder-coated, lightweight steel wheels as standard equipment for Wabash National’s trailers.
“We’re honored with the recognition and thrilled that we provide the cost savings, project leadership and responsiveness that Wabash cited as the reasons for the award,” says Donald Hampton, Jr., vice president and general manager of the Americas. “We bring the same commitment to excellence to every client we serve. It’s a philosophy that sustains us as a global leader in steel wheels for the trucking industry.”
