Daimler Trucks North America LLC has named Mack Molding’s Inman, S.C., plant a recipient of its prized Masters of Quality award, the highest recognition the company gives to its suppliers. Presented annually, the 2007 Masters of Quality award was given to 43 manufacturing locations out of more than 1,000 suppliers who provide components for Freightliner, Sterling and Western Star truck brands.
The 21-year-old Masters of Quality program recognizes an elite group of suppliers who meet or exceed Daimler Trucks North America’s stringent quality standards and demonstrate an ongoing commitment to improving the quality of their products. “In light of the many challenges we face in our industry today, this is no easy accomplishment,” says Daimler Chief Operating Officer Roger Nielsen. “The Masters of Quality winners are the role models for our entire supplier base.”
Mack Molding supplies Freightliner with over 80 components for fender, bumper and other related heavy truck assemblies. “As a first-time recipient of this award, we are especially proud,” says Ray Burns, president of Mack’s southern division, “and look forward to continuing and growing our relationship with Freightliner. I congratulate all who work at the Inman facility for this team effort, and challenge them to a repeat performance in the year ahead.”
