Valvoline recently received a 2021 Global Supplier Recognition Award in the category of Global Best Safety Practices, indirect sourcing, from global power leader Cummins Inc. This honor puts Valvoline in an elite group of Cummins suppliers recognized for supporting the company and partnering for success.
Cummins is a corporation of complementary business segments that design, manufacture, distribute and service a broad portfolio of power solutions, including diesel, natural gas, electric and hybrid powertrains and powertrain-related components.
Valvoline and Cummins have been partners for more than 25 years, working in tandem since the mid-1990s to develop lubricants for numerous heavy-duty applications, including fluids for vehicles powered by alternative fuels.
In September 2021, Valvoline announced a five-year renewal of their longstanding marketing and technology partnership agreement.
“Valvoline is committed to delivering best-in-class products, service, and support to our customers and partners,” said Jamal Muashsher, president, Valvoline Global Products. “We are honored to receive this recognition from Cummins, a global strategic partner for over 25 years, which highlights our consistent approach and relentless spirit to always improve.”
“Our suppliers are vital to our success at Cummins; we could not have served our customers so well without them,” said Priscila Mendes, Cummins executive director – Global Purchasing. “Our 2021 award winners have demonstrated excellence in one or all of the following areas: safety practices, diversity, quality, on-time delivery, innovation, customer service, corporate responsibility and commitment to Cummins’ core values. Cummins is proud to partner with our suppliers to enable our customers to succeed and power a more prosperous world.”
The winning suppliers are nominated by the respective business units and functional areas from more than 5,000 suppliers to Cummins in the United States.
