SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (June 25, 2003)—The Big Three tire makers each made an automotive magazine's list of the top 50 automotive suppliers.
The results of Automotive Industries 6th Annual Quest for Excellence survey listed Bridgestone/Firestone North American Tire, Goodyear and Michelin North America Inc. in the unranked top 50. No other tire maker made the list. Continental Teves Inc. was listed in the top 50.
Automotive Industries annually surveys thousands of original equipment manufacturers to determine which companies are regarded as the top suppliers in the industry. Readers of the Southfield-based magazine were asked to rate the performance of some 300 companies on quality, innovation, price, delivery and service/support.
