Dana Holding Corporation announces that it has earned a Masters of Quality Award from Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA), the highest honor for suppliers to the commercial-vehicle manufacturer.  

Dana's manufacturing facility in Lima, OH, was recognized for its commitment to quality, delivery, technology and cost performance. The largest heavy-duty truck manufacturer in North America, DTNA manufactures, sells and services several renowned commercial-vehicle brands, including Freightliner and Western Star, as well as Thomas Built Buses. It is also the leading producer of medium-duty trucks and specialized commercial vehicles across the continent.

"We understand the importance of manufacturing and supplying top-quality components in order to move the industry forward," says Mark Wallace, Executive Vice President of Dana and Group President of Dana On-Highway Driveline Technologies. "This recognition and confidence from Daimler Trucks is a testament to our evolving relationship with a manufacturer we've been working with for more than 15 years. Together, we will carry on our shared commitment to delivering safe, high-quality, durable and serviceable vehicles."

Now in its 28th year, the Masters of Quality Award is presented to an elite group of suppliers who meet rigorous standards and also show a commitment for continual improvement. DTNA's suppliers are evaluated semi-annually on more than 100 criteria related to quality, service, aftermarket parts availability, engineering, warranty and purchasing; only those rated at the top are recognized with the award.

Dana supplies DTNA with a complete range of Spicer drive axles, steer axles, driveshafts and central tire inflation systems, all backed by Dana's best-in-class standard warranties and extended warranty coverage. Dana also offers top-tier Spicer aftermarket products and the expert support fleet managers need to maximize the performance of their vehicles.
