Superior Trim Receives Top Honor from Navistar at 2023 Supplier Excellence Awards


[October 3, 2023, Chicago, IL] - Superior Trim, a prominent provider of high-quality interior trim products for the heavy-truck and recreational-vehicle industry, is thrilled to announce that it has been awarded the highest honor of “platinum” in the overall Performance Category at Navistar’s 2023 Supplier Excellence Awards.


Navistar Inc. announced its 2023 Supplier Excellence Awards recognizing top-performing suppliers across a variety of industries in two major categories: Performance and Leadership. The Performance Awards honor four recipients for their excellence in quality, delivery, cost, and continuous improvements. Award recipients are ranked from platinum to bronze.


“Even as the supply chain constraints continue, many Navistar suppliers have gone above and beyond to ensure they are exceeding Navistar’s expectations,” said Peter Friberg, Chief Procurement Officer. “We are proud to recognize these suppliers and their achievements, as we continue on our journey to accelerate the impact of sustainable mobility.”


Tyler Johnson, President of Superior Trim, expressed his gratitude for the recognition: "Earning the Platinum Award showcases our team's commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction. We are honored to be in good company with a select few suppliers as well. We appreciate the true partnership that we have with Navistar and fully intend to build onto that foundation. When you have a customer like Navistar that truly recognizes the performance of the entire organization, it is very refreshing. We have the best team in the business, from the production floor, engineering, quality, materials, sales, and everyone in between. It is always rewarding to have that effort recognized. We pushed our standards higher during this “covid era”, at a time when most every type of business moved the opposite way. That takes a level of dedication and perseverance that very few teams could pull off so consistently when up against so many challenges.”
