Con-way Manufacturing Receives Trailer Maker Award…Again

ANN ARBOR, MI. And SEARCY, AR. – The less-than-truckload trailer manufacturing and refurbishing company owned by the trucking and logistics provider Con-way Inc. announced this week it was honored with the 2014 Plant Safety Award from the Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association (TTMA).

The win, during TTMA’s 73rd Annual Convention in Cambridge, MD on April 30, marks the fifth straight year Con-way Mfg. received the award and sixth time overall it has won.

Under the TTMA Plant Safety program, award winners are selected from member companies’ yearlong occupational injury data, recorded in accordance with the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) requirements.

Con-way Mfg. attributes much of its success to an emphasis on behavior-based safety strategies, which it said are designed to deeply engage employees in effective safety practice..

“Everyone at Con-way understands that a continuously improving safety program is a critical component of our daily business,” said Lynn Reinbolt, president of Con-way Mfg. “Receiving this award for the fifth consecutive year speaks to the ongoing, collaborative efforts of our entire team toward the continued growth of the culture of safety we’ve established here.”

This year marked the 44th presentation of the Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association Plant Safety Awards. TTMA is a member-based organization established to build confidence between manufacturers of truck trailers, cargo tanks and intermodal containers and their suppliers and to bring about a mutual understanding of the problems confronting all manufacturers.

Con-way Mfg. designs, builds and sells new freight trailers, and has a recycling/refurbishing operation which rebuilds and renews existing trailers to extend their useful life, while recycling old components and materials. The company provides trailers and other equipment to its sister transportation and logistics operating companies within the Con-way organization.
