WABCO Holdings group company R.H. Sheppard, the supplier of industry-leading steering technologies, has received the PACCAR Inc Supplier Performance Management (SPM) Achiever Award for the second consecutive year.
Global truck manufacturer PACCAR Inc recognizes its top performing suppliers in the areas of product development, operations support, and business alignment with the truck maker’s objectives. Sheppard has been selected for its reliability and delivery performance.
“It is a great honour to receive PACCAR’s Supplier Performance Management Achiever Award on behalf of the entire Sheppard team. We continue to build on our more than the 20-year strategic partnership with PACCAR by contributing advanced steering system to the commercial vehicle manufacturer’s world-class Kenworth and Peterbilt truck brands in North America,” said Piotr Sroka, WABCO Business Leader, Global Steering.
WABCO acquired R.H. Sheppard in September 2017. Sheppard offers a suite of power-steering gears for heavy-duty commercial and speciality vehicles. Sheppard employs approximately 900 people at its U.S. facilities in Hanover, Pennsylvania, and Wytheville, Virginia.
“We are excited about our suppliers’ performance achieved since we launched the SPM programme three years ago. We appreciate the value created for customers, dealers and PACCAR from continuous improvement initiatives under the programme,” said Bill Jackson, PACCAR Vice President, Global Purchasing.
