Navistar has recognized 35 of its top-performing suppliers with its annual Diamond Supplier Awards. Exclusive to the top two percent of the company's supplier base, this select group has helped Navistar deliver uptime to its customers and has exceeded performance expectations in four key metrics: quality, delivery, technology and cost.
"The companies we recognize with the Diamond Supplier Award stand out from the rest for the outstanding level of support they provide in helping us deliver the highest level of quality and value to our customers," said Dave McKean, chief procurement officer, Navistar. "These suppliers have earned this recognition by demonstrating a shared, unwavering commitment to quality, customer value, cost-effectiveness and innovation."
2018 was a significant year for Navistar, marked by its re-entry into the Class 4/5 market with the International CV Series, increased market penetration for the International A26 engine and continued growth in market share for its vehicles. Much of this success can be tied to the close partnerships the company has with the suppliers it is recognizing with this award.
"Enabled by partnerships with some of the world's finest suppliers, 2018 was a fantastic year for Navistar," said McKean. "Following a year of such achievements, the Diamond Supplier Awards are about pausing to recognize these suppliers who surpassed expectations, reached excellence and allowed us to perform to our potential."
The Diamond Supplier Award recognizes suppliers from all around the world in a variety of industries; including freight and engineering services, electronics, powertrain and chassis components and advanced safety systems. This year's Diamond Suppliers also include a diverse group of companies owned and operated by women, minorities and veterans.
