Hadley receives Daimler Masters of Quality Award
Hadley has earned the Masters of Quality award for 2013 accomplishments from Daimler. Hadley was one of only 59 manufacturers selected from over 1,000 currently supplying Daimler to receive the award for quality excellence. Masters of Quality award is the highest recognition Daimler Trucks North America gives to its suppliers. Daimler presented the Masters of Quality award during an on-site ceremony at Hadley’s Global headquarters, located at 2851 Prairie Street, Grandville, Michigan.
“It is a privilege to be recognized by the world’s largest truck manufacturer with this prestigious award” said Bob Dubsky, President. “We are extremely proud to earn this honor.”
The annual program, now in its 26th year, recognizes suppliers that meet or exceed Daimler Truck North America’s stringent quality standards by receiving high scores on their Quality, Delivery, Technology, and Cost performance as measured on a Balanced Scorecard. These suppliers demonstrate an on-going commitment to improving the reliability of their products and overall performance of their businesses.
Hadley supplies Air Horns, Mechanical and Electronic Height Control Valves and Mirror systems to the Daimler Truck North America, Freightliner brand.
