DENSO International America (DIAM), one of the world’s largest automotive technology, systems and components suppliers, earned a 2016 Masters of Quality Supplier Award from Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA).
Each year, DTNA recognizes outstanding suppliers which demonstrate an ongoing commitment to continuously improving product quality, support for DTNA and overall business performance. It is the highest distinction DTNA gives to its suppliers.
“This is a testament to each member of our team’s commitment to delivering great service and highly-innovative products every day,” said Christian Dudley. “We look forward to continuing our work helping Daimler Trucks deliver business value.”
Now in its 30th year, the Masters of Quality Supplier Awards honors suppliers for receiving high marks in quality, delivery, technology and cost performance, as measured on a Balanced Scorecard basis. Award recipients provide services and components to DTNA’s Freightliner and Western Star brands.
