Navistar this week honored 33 top-performing suppliers with its annual Diamond Supplier Award. This select group — which represents the top two percent of the company’s supply base — helped Navistar improve customer uptime and exceeded the performance expectations for quality, delivery, technology, and cost.
“We strive to create products that have excellent quality and uptime,” said David McKean, vice president of procurement for Navistar. “The suppliers receiving this award have proven to us that we can count on them to do the job, and do it well.”
From freight and travel services to wheels, electronics and castings, the Diamond Supplier Award recognizes suppliers from around the world. The latest group of Diamond Suppliers includes a diverse group of businesses: women- and minority-owned businesses, small and large companies from the Midwest and other areas of the United States, as well as global suppliers from Mexico, Taiwan, China and Canada.
