Dana Receives Masters of Quality Award from Daimler Trucks North America

Dana Holding Corporation today announced that it has earned a Masters of Quality Award from Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA), the highest honor for suppliers to the commercial-vehicle manufacturer.  


Dana's manufacturing facility in Lima, Ohio, was recognized for its commitment to quality, delivery, technology, and cost performance.  The largest heavy-duty truck manufacturer in North America, DTNA manufactures, sells, and services several renowned commercial-vehicle brands, including Freightliner and Western Star, as well as Thomas Built Buses.  It is also the leading producer of medium-duty trucks and specialized commercial vehicles across the continent.

"We understand the importance of manufacturing and supplying top-quality components in order to move the industry forward," said Mark Wallace, executive vice president of Dana and group president of Dana On-Highway Driveline Technologies.  "This recognition and confidence from Daimler Trucks is a testament to our evolving relationship with a manufacturer we've been working with for more than 15 years.  Together, we will carry on our shared commitment to delivering safe, high-quality, durable, and serviceable vehicles."

Now in its 28th year, the Masters of Quality Award is presented to an elite group of suppliers who meet rigorous standards and also show a commitment for continual improvement.  DTNA's suppliers are evaluated semi-annually on more than 100 criteria related to quality, service, aftermarket parts availability, engineering, warranty, and purchasing; only those rated at the top are recognized with the award.

Dana supplies DTNA with a complete range of Spicer® drive axles, steer axles, driveshafts, and central tire inflation systems, all backed by Dana's best-in-class standard warranties and extended warranty coverage.  Dana also offers top-tier Spicer aftermarket products and the expert support fleet managers need to maximize the performance of their vehicles.
