AVON, Ohio – For the sixth consecutive year, Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC (Bendix) has been recognized with one of the industry’s most-coveted supplier awards: Truck manufacturer PACCAR has again named Bendix one of its top-performing suppliers in North America.
Bendix, the North American leader in the development and manufacture of active safety, air management, and braking system technologies for commercial vehicles, joins 30 other suppliers honored with PACCAR Supplier Performance Management (SPM) awards.
Every year, PACCAR recognizes its top-performing suppliers through its SPM program. The honor is given to suppliers that achieve performance ratings according to PACCAR’s designated SPM Master, Leader, and Achiever status levels. The program is designed to drive collaboration and continuous improvement between the truck maker and its suppliers, in turn leading to performance enhancements and product innovations.
“To be named a winner of PACCAR’s distinguished Supplier Performance Management awards is a great accomplishment, especially noting we have been included in this prestigious group for the sixth year running,” said Mike Hawthorne, Bendix president and CEO. “This award is an honor and a proud moment for all of us.
“The performance ratings we earned from PACCAR in 2021 recognizes a wide range of process categories and speaks to the relationship we’ve developed with the PACCAR team, and it shows how well aligned we are when it comes to performance, value, and innovation. It’s an accomplishment we’re celebrating, and one we’ll continue to diligently pursue going forward.”
Bendix is part of Munich, Germany-based Knorr-Bremse, the global market leader for braking systems and a leading supplier of other safety-critical rail and commercial vehicle systems. Bendix’s manufacturing facilities are located in Acuña, Mexico; Bowling Green, Kentucky; Hanover, Pennsylvania; Huntington, Indiana; Lebanon, Tennessee; and Wytheville, Virginia.
