In honour of the world-class collaborative partnerships with its suppliers, Great Dane hosted its third annual Supplier Summit in Savannah, Georgia, and presented several supplier partners with awards for excellence.
An awards reception was held at Great Dane’s new Savannah office where guests were invited to tour the facility’s customer experience centre and Innovation Hall, an interactive exhibit space that features Great Dane’s products and highlights the company’s history as a leader in the transportation industry. During the reception, Great Dane recognised its top supplier partners, giving awards for quality, safety, large and small suppliers of the year, and flatbed and reefer trailer suppliers of the year.
The 2017 award winners include Accuride Corporation in the quality category and Sherwin Williams in the safety category. This is the third year in a row that Sherwin Williams has received this award. The large supplier of the year award was given to Accuride Corporation (pictured and the small supplier of the year award went to Manus Products, Inc.
Two new categories were introduced this year as well. The flatbed trailer supplier of the year award was given to CMC Impact Metals and the reefer trailer supplier of the year award went to Earthwise Plastics, Inc.
