Two in One Week – North American Phillips Industries Manufacturing Facilities Receive the DTNA Masters of Quality Award for 2015
 
Santa Fe Springs, CA (October 19, 2016) Not one, but both of Phillips Industries’ manufacturing facilities in North America are being recognized by Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) with their Masters of Quality Award for 2015; all in the span of one week. Since its inception, Phillips Industries has now collectively merited the MOQ Award ten times overall company-wide.  
 
Daimler suppliers considered for the Masters of Quality Award are evaluated semi-annually on more than 100 criteria related to quality, service, aftermarket parts availability, engineering, warranty, and purchasing; and only those rated at the top are recognized with this award.  
 
On Monday, October 17th, the entire manufacturing floor at the Santa Fe Springs, CA location came to a standstill as those who work in production, and office employees alike, gathered to watch representatives from DTNA honor the Commercial Vehicle Products (CVP) division of Phillips Industries with the Masters of Quality Award for 2015.  
 
During the award’s ceremony at CVP, Rob Phillips, president of Phillips Industries, commended all Phillips employees for their hard work in achieving the DTNA award this year. "What an honor it is to once again be recognized by Daimler for this most prestigious award! Having our Commercial Vehicle Products division in California receive the Masters of Quality Award for the fifth time as one of the best of more than 1,000 suppliers around the world really adds momentum for us to raise the bar even further! I’m incredibly proud of our team for achieving such a landmark accomplishment!"  
 
Additionally, the Electrical Harness Division (EHD), located in Arteaga, Mexico, is proud to have received DTNA’s Masters of Quality Award consecutively every year since 2011. Today, October 19th, they were presented with the Masters of Quality Award again for 2015, which shows a continued dedication in working together to strive towards excellence in providing service and quality products to our customers.  
 
Rob Phillips commented, “Having two manufacturing facilities recognized in the same week by Daimler as one of their top suppliers is something we couldn’t be more proud of. I have to recognize the entire team at Phillips' Electrical Harness Division in Arteaga, Mexico for building such a solid foundation based on continuous improvement and a love for the business which has resulted in achieving their fifth straight Masters of Quality Award from Daimler!"
