Meritor, Inc. announces four of its manufacturing facilities were bestowed the 2011 Quality Achievement Award from Paccar, Inc.
Meritor says this award is among the industry’s most demanding due to the standards established for supplier parts and component quality. The Quality Award recognizes suppliers that have achieved a defect rate of 50 parts per million (PPM) or less during 2011, Meritor says.
Meritor’s recipients of this award are Forest City, N.C., Newark, Ohio, Laurinburg, N.C. and Manning, S.C. Meritor says at least four of its facilities have won Quality Awards the past three years.
“We are proud of each Meritor facility that received the award,” says Chris Villavarayan, Meritor’s vice president, Global Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management. “Meritor is committed to providing the highest quality products year after year, meeting critical global standards for quality, reliability, and performance for our customers around the world, and this quality award serves to validate our efforts.”
Meritor says it supplies axles, braking systems, and other drivetrain components for Paccar’s Kenworth, Peterbilt and DAF trucks.
