Bridgestone Wins Supplier Award
Every year PACCAR Inc., the parent company of truck manufacturer DAF, acknowledges suppliers meeting specific quality requirements with a “PACCAR 50PPM Quality Achievement Award”. The ‘50PPM’ refers to 50 parts per million, the maximum proportion of non-conforming parts PACCAR allows for from its suppliers, and Bridgestone has received a 50PPM Quality Achievement Award for its performance as a tyre supplier in Europe during 2009. This is the first time Bridgestone has received such an award from DAF’s parent company.
“Bridgestone Europe is honoured to receive this prestigious Quality Achievement Award from DAF” said Mr Gerry Duffy, vice president Sales and Marketing, Bridgestone Europe. “We are proud to meet the high product and service standards demanded by PACCAR and look forward to continuing this partnership in the future.”
Bridgestone Europe supplies the full range of tyres to DAF as original equipment for its range of medium and heavy trucks.
