Meritor receives PACCAR honor

Meritor earned its fourth consecutive Quality Achievement Award from PACCAR, Inc. The award is one of the industry’s most demanding for parts and component quality and recognizes suppliers that have achieved a defect rate of 50 parts per million (PPM) or less during 2012.

Four Meritor manufacturing facilities received PACCAR’s 2012 Quality Achievement Award: Forest City, N.C.; Cienega, Mexico; Frankfort, Ky.; and Sisamex, the company’s joint venture with Quimmco in Monterrey, Mexico.
“Earning this award for several years at multiple manufacturing sites underscores our deep commitment to providing customers with the highest-quality components in the industry,” said Wayne Watson, general manager, Commercial Vehicle Systems Operations, North America, Meritor. “Drivers can be confident in the reliability and performance of Meritor parts.”

Meritor supplies axles, braking systems and other drivetrain components for PACCAR’s Kenworth, Peterbilt and DAF commercial trucks.
