Daimler gives Masters of Quality nod to Phillips Industries

Updated Aug 5, 2011

For the third time, Phillips Industries has been selected to receive the prestigious Daimler Trucks North America Masters of Quality Award. Phillips Industries was recognized for their efforts during 2010 in again meeting the rigid requirements and expectations for suppliers to Daimler Trucks North America.

DTNA presents the Masters of Quality Award annually to an elite group of suppliers who meet their rigorous standards and also show a commitment for continual improvement. Daimler’s suppliers are evaluated semi-annually on more than 100 criteria related to quality, service, aftermarket parts availability, engineering, warranty and purchasing; and only those rated at the top are recognized with this award.

Phillips Industries supplies cab harnesses, trailer cables, and other related products to DTNA. Bob Phillips, President of Phillips Industries, expressed the pride the entire company feels in achieving this recognition again for 2010. “Daimler promotes quality as a routine part of their business. For Phillips to regularly gain recognition from them for our own quality is a testament to the continuous improvement programs put in place by everyone here. Daimler is a valued customer, and we are committed to continue meeting the quality goals they set for their suppliers.”
