TROY, Mich.—For the second straight year, Dayco Co. has been recognized for its consistent levels of manufacturing quality and distribution capabilities, receiving the PACCAR Award for production at its Chieti plant in Italy.
Bellevue, Wash.-based PACCAR (Pacific Car and Foundry Co.) is the parent organization of DAF, Kenworth and Peterbilt brands, manufacturers of light-, medium- and heavy-duty trucks.
Dayco, a global engine products and drive systems supplier for the automotive, industrial and aftermarket industries, said it received the award for delivering OEM components "that match or exceed (PACCAR's) 10PPM performance requirements."
"This latest endorsement is a further demonstration of Dayco's underlying strengths in the design, manufacture and delivery of premium quality OE components and systems across the automotive industry," John Kinnick, president of Dayco's global belt operations said in a statement. "It is also a tribute to the team of dedicated professionals who are based at our Chieti facility."
The PACCAR award recognizes Dayco for these achievements during 2019. The company was awarded for the same achievements in 2018.
"PACCAR Quality Achievement certification acknowledges that its reputation for producing trucks of unsurpassed quality is in no small part due to suppliers such as Dayco, who have achieved its quality expectations," a PACCAR spokesperson said.
Dayco was founded in 1905 in Dayton, Ohio, and now has more than 40 locations in 22 countries and employs 4,500 worldwide.
