SAVANNAH, GA – Suppliers to one trailer manufacturer will soon be honored while they can also get together to talk about new trailer solutions they can offer up for the future.
Great Dane has announced plans for the company’s first Supplier Summit and Innovation Challenge, to be held Sept. 28-30 in Savannah, GA.
According to the company, the goal is to provide a forum to celebrate the contributions of Great Dane’s key suppliers, including an awards dinner on September 28, but also to bring together the most talented and creative resources to create cutting-edge solutions for Great Dane and its customers.
Rick Mullininx, Great Dane’s executive vice president of engineering and a member of the company’s Innovation Advisory Board, said that the solutions the company has in mind can be in the form of new products, processes or services.
“We’re truly excited about these new opportunities to collaborate with our key suppliers,” he said. “We look forward to strong participation and a lot of great new ideas in the process.”
Mullininx said the Innovation Challenge will also provide participating suppliers with an opportunity to spend additional time in collaborative discussions with a cross-functional team of Great Dane managers and leaders, with the goal of developing new business solutions that leverage both company’s specific areas of expertise.
