Paccar says the award recognizes suppliers who demonstrate excellence in operational efficiency, parts availability, cost performance and program support.
“Horton has shown a strong commitment to supporting Kenworth and Peterbilt dealers with the parts and resources they need to best serve our customers,” said Karl Mowat, general marketing manager for Paccar Parts. “Their training opportunities and outstanding customer service exemplify the partnership we want with our suppliers. We’re pleased to recognize their achievements with this award.”
Horton is a leading manufacturer of fan drives, fans and related components for trucks, buses, industrial equipment and off-highway applications. They supply Paccar dealers with products that are designed to cool today’s hotter running engines, such as the DM Advantage line of fan clutches, Paccar says.
In 2012, Horton also participated in all Paccar dealer events and provided training to more than 1,000 Kenworth and Peterbilt dealer personnel. Their training covers the breadth of Horton’s engine cooling solutions in order to offer customers the best fit for their application, including repair, retrofit and upgrade options, the company says.
Jeff Lindgren, senior vice president of sales for Horton, says the company is honored to earn the Supplier of the Year award from Paccar Parts.
“We are extremely pleased to receive this recognition from Paccar Parts,” he says. “This award reflects the hard work we’ve put into to developing our products to meet the challenges posed by today’s stringent emission standards, hotter engines and more cost-conscious customers.
“Paccar Parts is a great partner for us because they take a full-service approach to the market that fits the way we do business. More than just providing replacement parts, Horton works with Kenworth and Peterbilt dealers to offer customers the best solution for their application, including all-makes parts and aftermarket conversions.”
