Goodyear Receives Outstanding Supplier Award
Penske Truck Leasing recently presented Goodyear Tire & Rubber with its Outstanding Achievement Award for 2007. Goodyear supplies Penske with a variety of truck tyres, including replacement and retreads, as well as tyre services, however this year is the first time the tyremaker has received this award. The Akron-based tyre company also received a Tire Supplier of the Year award, its eighth consecutive.
Steve McClellan, Goodyear’s vice president of commercial tire systems, said, “We’ve worked hard to develop innovative products and business tools that help lower Penske’s tyre cost-per- mile as well as grow our service footprint to better serve Penske trucks as they travel North American highways. In addition, Goodyear nationwide surveys helped Penske reduce tyre-related emergency service calls by 38 per cent last year,” McClellan said.
