Accuride Brands Win Thomas Built Supplier Awards
Accuride Corporation’s Gunite and Accuride Wheels brands have received Silver Supplier Awards for 2009 from Daimler Trucks North America division Thomas Built Buses. This award is given to Thomas Built Buses suppliers whose “supplier report cards” exceed a 90 per cent standard of excellence for the year. Suppliers are graded on their performance in specified criteria surrounding quality, delivery, cost, warranty, and technical support.
“I am extremely proud that two of our brands were honoured with Silver Supplier Awards,” said Bill Lasky, Accuride’s president, CEO, and chairman of the Board. “Despite the challenging marketplace, our team members continually demonstrate their dedication through the unwavering emphasis they place on the safe production and on-time delivery of quality products.
“It is this commitment to exceeding customer expectations that has allowed Accuride to build and maintain a solid industry reputation,” added Lasky. “Clearly, the strength of Accuride is proven through awards such as this that recognise the performance of our team members, the quality of our products, and the satisfaction of our customers.”
