Hilton Head, South Carolina -- Michelin North America Inc. received the 2011 Secretary of Defense Performance-Based Logistics (PBL) Award for its supply of tyres to the US Navy.
The company's Michelin Aircraft Tire Co. unit was recognised at a ceremony last week at the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) Fall Product Support Conference.
â€œThis award from the Secretary of Defense demonstrates MichelinÂ´s expertise, reliability and commitment to supporting our Navy's mobility requirements,â€ said Pete Selleck, chairman and president of MNA. â€œThe men and women of the US military make great sacrifices to serve our country. At Michelin, it is our privilege to serve them in return through our 'right-tyre, on-time' efforts.â€
In addition to the PBL Award, Michelin Aircraft Tire and Michelin Americas Truck Tires have both been recognized before with eight consecutive Best Value Awards from the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA).
In 2011, Michelin was among a group of only 182 companies-out of more than 7000 military parts suppliers-that were recognized by the DLA for meeting performance requirements in the Automated Best Value System.
