Friedrichshafen. ZF has been honored with four highly coveted performance awards from DAF Trucks as part of its annual Supplier Performance Management (SPM) Program. Evaluating product development, operational support and business alignment, the awards recognize excellence across key 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 leading 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 recognized WABCO’s significant quality and performance improvements over the previous year, elevating the business from ‘Achiever’ to ‘Leader – an award fewer than a quarter of DAF’s suppliers received.
“We are truly honored to receive four top awards from DAF Trucks. They powerfully represent our passion and unwavering commitment to delivering the highest levels of performance as a top supplier in the commercial vehicle industry,” said Wilhelm Rehm, Member of the Board of Management of ZF Friedrichshafen AG with responsibility for Commercial Vehicle Technology, Industrial Technology and Materials Management.
