US-based trailer builder, Great Dane, has recognised two of its supply partners with service awards for outstanding support and commitment to the business.
Executives from Great Dane presented Hendrickson International and Rockland Flooring with these awards at the 2019 Truck Trailer Manufacturers’ Association (TTMA) Annual Convention on 25 April in Bonita Springs, Florida.
“The strength of the current market has provided many opportunities for our industry, but it has also come with many challenges, including shortages of essential equipment parts,” said Great Dane President, Dean Engelage. “We wanted to show our immense gratitude to Hendrickson and Rockland for standing by Great Dane.”
Keeping up with record-high production volumes is an industry-wide issue that has been especially taxing on parts suppliers, according to Great Dane. Understanding the challenges its suppliers were facing, Great Dane recognised Hendrickson and Rockland for helping the company to fulfill orders despite the intense industry demand.
“Great Dane is fortunate to have built such strong relationships with quality partners like Hendrickson and Rockland, who have gone above and beyond to support us during this period of unprecedented demand,” said Engelage. “We understand the pressures our suppliers are facing, and we are extremely grateful to these upstanding companies for their commitment to helping keep Great Dane on top.”
Last month, Great Dane established three new flatbed trailer distribution centres.
