DuPont Performance Coatings (DPC) recently received the prestigious Daimler Trucks North America Masters of Quality Award. This is the fifth time DuPont has received the award, and the third time in the past four years.
The Masters of Quality program recognizes an elite group of suppliers who meet or exceed Daimler Trucks North America's stringent quality standards and demonstrate an ongoing commitment to improving the quality of their products. Daimler's suppliers are evaluated semi-annually on more than 100 criteria related to aftermarket parts, quality, engineering, warranty, service, availability and purchasing. While more than 1,200 suppliers are considered for the award, only suppliers rated in the top three to four percent are recognized as a Masters of Quality winner.
DPC is the leading manufacturer and marketer of heavy-duty truck coatings in North America. Daimler, which manufactures the Freightliner brand of heavy trucks, is the largest manufacturer of commercial trucks in North America, with more than a quarter of the market for class 5-7 trucks.
DuPont Imron Elite is the exclusive topcoat for Daimler Trucks' Freightliner brand manufacturing facilities in the United States and Mexico. The identical product is used in the commercial vehicle aftermarket by Freightliner dealers.
