June 15, 2017, Bellevue, Washington – PACCAR annually recognizes excellent suppliers who meet or exceed PACCAR’s rigorous “10 ppm” quality standard. To be recognized, a supplier must operate near perfection – 10 or fewer defective parts for every million parts shipped to PACCAR. These suppliers must also meet performance criteria for on-time delivery and support of PACCAR’s operating divisions and their customers.
“PACCAR works closely with the highest quality automotive and commercial vehicle suppliers in developing and producing our vehicles and support systems. We recognize the effort and commitment required to meet our quality and performance expectations, and congratulate our 2016 10 ppm award winners for their achievement,” said Debra Poppas, PACCAR vice president of global quality.
