Handful of ArvinMeritor facilities earn quality award

TROY, Mich. — Five of ArvinMeritor’s manufacturing facilities have received PACCAR’s 2009 Quality Achievement Award.

The award recognizes suppliers with a defect rate of 50 parts per million (PPM) or better during 2009. ArvinMeritor supplies axles, braking systems, and other drivetrain components for PACCAR’s Kenworth, Peterbilt, and DAF trucks.

The five ArvinMeritor facilities to achieve PACCAR’s “50 PPM” standard are: Forest City, N.C.; Franklin, Ky.; Cienega de Flores, Mexico; Escobedo, Mexico; and Lindesberg, Sweden.

“We’re especially proud of this distinction because it was achieved by five ArvinMeritor facilities, including our joint venture SISAMEX in Mexico, supplying best-in-class components across different regions of the world,” said Barry Eckel, director of OEM Sales. “It’s a testament to our world-class capabilities and ongoing commitment to meeting the highest global standards for quality, reliability, and performance wherever our customers are.”
