Allison Transmission, one of the largest global manufacturers of medium- and heavy-duty fully automatic transmissions, has been named recipient of the 2019 Master of Quality Award from Daimler Trucks of North America (DTNA). This is the fourth time that Allison has received this elite award from DTNA, and it is the highest recognition the company gives to its suppliers. The annual award program recognizes outstanding suppliers that received high scores on their quality, delivery, technology and cost performance.
“I want to express our deep appreciation for making quality a top priority,” said Ken Pyne, manager of Supplier Quality at Daimler Trucks North America. Due to the pandemic, travel restrictions will require that many of the awards be mailed to recipients, with some delivered in person to approved locations.
“Our commitment to excellence and the delivery of high-quality transmissions allows us to meet the rigorous standards set by DTNA,” said Rohan Barua, vice president of North America OEM Sales for Allison Transmission. “We are proud to receive this award as we continue to strengthen our partnership with DTNA.”
A partner for many years, DTNA is one of Allison’s largest North American OEM customers. DTNA is a leading heavy-duty truck manufacturer and includes brands such as Freightliner, Freightliner Custom Chassis, Western Star and Thomas Built Buses.
