Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies has been named the Rear Axle Supplier of the Year by Meritor, and was cited by executives as the “real seal deal” at an award ceremony that took place last month Meritor’s headquarters in in Troy, Mich.
Freudenberg-NOK’s pinion seals as well as other seals are used by Meritor in its commercial vehicle business. Freudenberg-NOK products can be found on the majority of commercial truck brands on the road today.
This is the second consecutive year that Freudenberg-NOK has been recognized for the innovation and technology it contributes to Meritor’s success, the company says.
“We are honored to receive Rear Axle Supplier of the Year recognition from Meritor, one of our largest General Industry customers,” says Tim Guzman, senior sales director for Freudenberg-NOK’s Power Sector. “This award represents our steadfast dedication to technology, innovation, quality and customer service to ensure we are meeting all of Meritor’s business needs. This is truly a collaborative relationship.”
Meritor executives noted during the award presentation that Freudenberg-NOK has consistently met demanding record volumes and competitiveness targets during 2015 while maintaining the performance and quality levels of the seals it is supplying.
In addition, the company’s Northfield, N.H. Competence Center has switched from compression molding to state-of-the-art injection molding in the manufacturing of the company’s pinion seals, a move that has improved quality, increased component volumes and reduced engineered waste at the facility, the company says.
