Published on 2012-01-02. Author : SpecialChem

DuPont Performance Coatings (DPC) recently received the prestigious Daimler Trucks North America Masters of Quality Award. This is the fifth time DuPont has received the award, and the third time in the past four years.

The Masters of Quality program recognizes an elite group of suppliers who meet or exceed Daimler Trucks North America's stringent quality standards and demonstrate an ongoing commitment to improving the quality of their products. Daimler's suppliers are evaluated semi-annually on more than 100 criteria related to aftermarket parts, quality, engineering, warranty, service, availability and purchasing. While more than 1,200 suppliers are considered for the award, only suppliers rated in the top 3 to 4 percent are recognized as a Masters of Quality winner.

"I am proud of our team for winning this influential award," said Nigel Budden, DPC North America Business Director. "DPC works hard every day to ensure the highest quality of our products, and this award confirms that we are meeting the needs of our heavy-duty truck customers."

DPC is the leading manufacturer and marketer of heavy-duty truck coatings in North America. Daimler, which manufactures the Freightliner brand of heavy trucks, is the largest manufacturer of commercial trucks in North America, with more than a quarter of the market for class 5-7 trucks.

"To win this award in back-to-back years is very exciting for DuPont," said Phil Henriques, heavy-duty truck sales manager, North America - DPC. "It reflects our commitment to Daimler Trucks North America, the immense dedication of our team and the quality and performance of the DuPont™ Imron® Elite technology.

DuPont™ Imron® Elite is the exclusive topcoat for Daimler Trucks' Freightliner brand manufacturing facilities in the United States and Mexico. The identical product is used in the commercial vehicle aftermarket by Freightliner dealers to ensure customer satisfaction and "repair-in-kind" quality.
