ZF has received four performance awards from DAF Trucks as part of its annual Supplier Performance Management (SPM) Programme.
Evaluating product development, operational support and business alignment, the awards recognise areas including product innovation and continuous performance improvement.
ZF received DAF’s highest ‘Master’ title, one of only two awarded against competition from some 60 companies, for its clutch product. ZF also received DAF’s ‘Leader’ award for its transmissions products, as well as an ‘Achiever’ award for its damper and chassis modules.
ZF’s new Commercial Vehicle Control Systems division, formed from its recent acquisition of WABCO, also added an overall performance ‘Leader’ award to the group’s tally.
For demonstration of value, DAF Trucks recognised WABCO’s quality and performance improvements compared to the previous year, elevating the business from ‘Achiever’ to ‘Leader – an award ZF says fewer than a quarter of DAF’s suppliers received.
“We are truly honoured to receive four top awards from DAF Trucks,” said ZF board member with responsibility for Commercial Vehicle Technology, Industrial Technology and Materials Management, Wilhelm Rehm.
