Great Dane recently announced the winners of its 2013 Supplier of the Year, which have been recognized as best in their respective categories: Webb Wheel Products in the large vendor category and Manus Products, Inc. in the small vendor category.

So what does it take to win this award? According to Great Dane's VP of Procurement, Bob Brege, candidates are selected based on a survey that ranks the company's top 100 suppliers at each of Great Dane's eight manufacturing facilities. Participating suppliers were evaluated in multiple areas including overall quality of product, competitive pricing, timely shipments, accuracy of shipments, packaging, response to problems, cooperation on returns, and technical assistance.


In September, winners were announced and recognized at Great Dane's biennial sales meeting in Ponte Vedra, Beach, FL in front of Great Dane management and sales teams.


"Our suppliers play an extremely important role in the success of our company, and in ensuring that our products and services remain the best the industry has to offer," Brege said. "Over the past year, both Webb Wheel Products and Manus Products have done a great job for us, and have distinguished themselves among a very impressive group of suppliers that we depend on every day. We greatly appreciate their hard work and dedication and are pleased to recognize them with these awards."

Webb Wheel Products of Tell City, Indiana supplies Great Dane with hubs and brake drums which are used in the construction of Great Dane refrigerated trailers, dry vans, and platform trailers.


Manus Products of Waconia, Minnesota supplies Great Dane with a wide range of bonding, sealing and gasket products used throughout Great Dane's three major trailer lines.
