Meritor Wabco Vehicle Control Systems has announced receiving the prestigious 2011 Platinum Supplier Award from trailer maker Wabash National Corp., noting it is the only supplier to receive this award for four consecutive years. Wabash’s Platinum Supplier Award is presented for excellence in supply chain performance, delivery, quality, cost and innovation.
The company supplies Wabash with trailer anti-lock braking systems (ABS), roll stability systems (RSS) and InfoLink data gateway systems that support tag axle control systems as well as the Meritor Tire Inflation System (MTIS) by PSI.
“Meritor Wabco is the leader in trailer ABS and our relationship with Wabash National – along with the honor of receiving this award four consecutive years – further proves our ability to provide top quality supply chain performance,” said Mark Melletat, director-trailer systems for Meritor Wabco.
“We were the first to provide real-time data communication between the tractor and trailer via our InfoLink system, which is used by Wabash National today,” he added. “We couldn’t be more proud to receive this award and have our products acknowledged by a leading trailer manufacturer such as Wabash National.”
