Through its Member Verification Program, the National Truck Equipment Association has requalified two member companies and approved three new member companies for their commitment to safety and quality standards. This brings the total number of companies who have achieved MVP status to 416 to date.
Since 2005, NTEA’s Member Verification Program has recognized distributors, manufacturers and upfitters for implementing quality business practices and for complying with specific government safety regulations. Criteria to meet the MVP standards can involve liability insurance, warranty programs, vehicle and employee certification, safety policies and quality assurance.
“We congratulate these members who have demonstrated compliance to key quality standards and for building better relationships between distributors and manufacturers, and between suppliers and their customers,” says NTEA Executive Director Jim Carney. “With the introduction of updated criteria, we have raised the bar of the MVP program to even higher standards, which should impact the quality efforts of our members and industry to an even greater extent.”
The newest MVPs are American Eagle Accessories Group, Garner, Iowa; Highway Equipment Co., Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and Pro-Vision Video Systems, Byron City, Mich. Members who have renewed their MVP status successfully are Donovan Equipment Co. Inc., Londonderry, N.H.; and OG Hughes & Sons Inc., Knoxville, Tenn. MVPs must re-verify every three years.
