Truck News

GRANDVIEW, Mo. — Peterson Manufacturing Company has been awarded Silver certification for 2012 through Caterpillar’s Supplier Quality Excellence Process. Caterpillar personnel visited Peterson’s corporate headquarters in Grandview on April 9 to present the award.

“Silver recognition proves what we’ve known for some time; Peterson’s people are never content with ‘good enough.'” said Steve Meagher, Peterson’s vice-president of sales. “No organization can maintain long-term success by just treading water, no matter how good they are. After 25 years of working closely with Caterpillar, we know here’s no such thing as good enough.”

Caterpillar’s award evaluates numerous criteria, including quality, shipping performance, capacity planning and more.

“We’re committed to improving everything we do, not just the quality of what goes out our dock doors. The responsiveness and attention we give to our relationship with Caterpillar is the same commitment we make to every one of our customers, and that is probably our greatest strength as a company,” Meagher said.

Peterson Manufacturing supplies Caterpillar with a variety of industrial lighting needs.
