Dana Inc. has once again been honored by Ford Motor Co. as a top-performing supplier. The company received two awards at the 20th annual Ford World Excellence Awards. Only 52 companies were selected as winners from thousands of Ford suppliers globally. This marks the fourth consecutive year Dana has received an award from Ford, and the company’s first in the Brand Pillar category.
Dana earned the Green Pillar Award, which is presented to top supplier parent companies that demonstrate excellence in the delivery of fuel-efficient technologies in support of Ford’s drive to become a global leader in environmentally sustainable and socially responsible products. Dana was one of four companies globally to receive the award.
“Our World Excellence awards recognize the outstanding achievements of Ford Motor Co.’s top-performing suppliers around the world,” said Hau Thai-Tang, executive vice president, product development and purchasing. “Suppliers like Dana are key to Ford’s continued success as we work toward our goal of becoming world’s most trusted mobility company.”
Dana also received a Silver Award, which recognizes the company’s axle manufacturing facility in Columbia, Missouri, for exceeding expectations to achieve the highest levels of excellence in quality, delivery, value and innovation.
“Receiving the Green Pillar Award from Ford Motor Co. is a demonstration of our team’s commitment to developing technologies that not only offer a significant benefit for the end-user, but also help to reduce the impact on the environment,” said James Kamsickas, Dana president and CEO. “We are pleased to receive this award from one of our largest customers and are excited to continue collaborating with them to deliver innovative solutions that provide maximum performance and fuel efficiency.”
