Peterbilt Motors Company received three prestigious manufacturing leadership awards from the National Association of Manufacturers. The awards recognize the Peterbilt Denton Plant’s leadership in manufacturing, safety, and efficiency.
Peterbilt received an Operational Excellence Leadership award for its Offline Priority Dashboard initiative. The initiative provides a real-time, on-demand source of information assisting the operations team to better forecast, prioritize, and distribute resources. Peterbilt’s initiative provides forecasts in offline recovery efforts to achieve delivery goals as well as assist with supply chain recovery. Additionally, with this new process, Peterbilt streamlined offline processes to deliver trucks to its customers in the most efficient manner.
The company also received an Engineering and Production Technology award for the Structural Fastening Equipment Modernization project. The project uses a fastening equipment hydraulic system featuring MiniBooster hydraulic pressure intensifiers. Further, the intensifiers are simple, inexpensive, and feature a changeable parallel installation and modular mounting system in case of failure.
The company also received the Transformative Culture award for Safety Program Improvements, with the addition of the Velocity EHS and DuPont STOP program improving the efficiency with immediate corrective actions and shifting the safety culture to the proactive mindset that every safety incident can be prevented.
“Peterbilt has a strong culture of continuous improvement,” says Leon Handt, Peterbilt assistant general manager, operations. “It’s an honor for our team of highly-skilled employees to be recognized for their ongoing initiatives to optimize our manufacturing processes.”
