MARKHAM, Ontario (September 9th, 2014) – Multimatic Inc. and Multimatic Manufacturing have been named recipients of the 2013 Daimler Trucks Masters of Quality award, Daimler’s highest award for suppliers.
Currently in its 27th year, the Masters of Quality award recognizes top suppliers of Daimler’s Freightliner and Western Star truck brands. The award is based on a balanced scorecard on more than 100 criteria related to aftermarket parts, quality, engineering, warranty, service, availability, and purchasing. While over 1,000 suppliers in Canada, Mexico and the United States are considered, recognition is conferred only upon those rated in the top three percent.
Multimatic Inc. has been named as a second-year recipient of the award, while Vaughan, Ontario’s Multimatic Manufacturing is a first-year recipient.
Daimler further describes recipients as having demonstrated ongoing commitment to continuously improving the quality of products and overall business performance. Multimatic’s repeated Masters of Quality performance owes in large part to the organization’s kaizen initiatives toward continuous improvement.
