Bridgestone Earns John Deere Supplier Award
Bridgestone Americas Inc. has earned recognition as a partner-level supplier for 2015 in the John Deere & Co. Achieving Excellence program. The partner-level status is Deere & Co.’s highest supplier rating.
Bridgestone was recognized for providing products and service of outstanding quality, and its commitment to continuous improvement. Employees of Bridgestone accepted the recognition during formal ceremonies recently held in Bettendorf, Iowa. The tire maker supplies agricultural and off-the-road tires to Deere & Co.'s global operations, with the majority of the business involving John Deere’s North American agricultural equipment manufacturing facilities.
“We are honored to receive this award of excellence from John Deere,” said Kurt Danielson, president of the Bridgestone Commercial Group. “We are constantly evaluating our performance to make sure our customers receive superior service from us at all times. This recognition proudly demonstrates the hard work and dedication of our employees at offices around the globe.”
Suppliers who participate in the Achieving Excellence program are evaluated annually in several key performance categories, including quality, cost management, delivery, technical support, and wavelength, which is a measure of responsiveness.
