Farmington Hills, Michigan -- Hino Motors Manufacturing U.S.A. Inc. recently presented Goodyear and Michelin North America Inc. with Quality Excellence Awards for commercial tyres on Hino medium-duty trucks.
Goodyear supplies Hino Motors, a Toyota Group company, with a variety of truck tyres, including Unisteel G149 RSA RH and G182 RSD regional-service tyres.
Steve McClellan, vice president of commercial tyres systems for Goodyear, said he is pleased to be recognised by Hino but said he believes there is still room for improvement.
â€œWe continue to seek ways to improve quality for our products and services, but this recognition from Hino Motors Manufacturing proves our efforts are working,â€ he said.
Farmington Hills-based Hino sold 5350 Class 6 and 7 trucks in North America last year. It assembles its vehicles at a facility in Williamstown, West Virginia.
