DENTON, TX – Peterbilt Motor Company and Paccar (its parents company) were big winners at the Manufacturing Leadership Summit in Palm Beach, Fla. when they took home four Frost & Sullivan Manufacturing Leadership awards.
Two of the awards– called High Achiever Awards – were in the categories of Workplace Leadership and Engineering and Product Technology Leadership.
“It’s an honour to be recognized for our ongoing efforts to innovate in all areas of our operations, particularly from among such a diverse and worthy field of candidates as those selected by Frost & Sullivan,” said Darrin Siver, Peterbilt general manager and Paccar vice-president. “Our design, engineering and manufacturing initiatives lead not only the trucking industry, but set new standards for quality, efficiency and technological leadership across all industries.”
Peterbilt was given the High Achiever Award for Workplace leadership because of its Human Centered Design Program that uses a diverse selection of company employees to brainstorm and develop new products.
Paccar was recognized as a High Achiever in Engineering and Product Technology for its Flexible Machining Line Production Process at its engine manufacturing facility.
“Continual improvement in our manufacturing processes to deliver our customers the highest quality products that meets their exact needs drives everything we do,” said Leon Handt, Peterbilt’s assistant general manager of operations. “Our production facilities feature highly trained employees, complemented by strategic areas of robotics and automation for a finished, custom-built truck that is second to none in the commercial vehicle industry.”
