MARGENGO, Ill. (Oct. 15, 2002) — Nissan Forklift Corp. of North America has named Solideal Tire its supplier of the year.
Nissan awards a single supplier out of 150 different companies it does business with based on a firm's quality and rejected parts rate, cost reduction planning and implementation, on-time and correct deliveries, reaction time and corrective actions. A supplier must perform almost perfectly in all those categories, according to Solideal.
A manufacturer and distributor of industrial and construction tires, Solideal has been a recipient of a Nissan award every year since Nissan Forklift started tracking supplier performances. Solideal operates from a Midwest headquarters in Lebanon, Ind., and an East Coast headquarters in Charlotte, N.C.
