Goodyear ranks among top US military suppliers.
Goodyear Tyre and Rubber were selected as one of the US Defense Logistics Agency’s (DLA) superior suppliers for fiscal 2017, the tyre maker said.
The award recognizes military industry partners who demonstrate exceptional performance supporting DLA, America’s combat logistics support agency, and deliver high-quality products to the US military and its contracted agencies. It is part of the Department of Defense’s Superior Supplier Incentive Program.
Awardees were selected based on their level of business with DLA and scores in DLA’s Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System.
Steve McClellan, president of Goodyear Americas, said: “Goodyear has been partnering with the US military dating almost as far back as our company’s inception. We are honoured to receive this award, and we are privileged to continue to supply the US military with tyres that equip their vehicles to help keep military men and women safe while they’re in the line of duty.”
