John Deere recognizes Hyster

by MM&D Online Staff

Hyster Company has earned recognition as a Partner-level supplier for 2014 in the John Deere Achieving Excellence Program. The Partner-level status is Deere & Company’s highest supplier rating.

Hyster was selected for this honour in recognition of its dedication to providing products and service of outstanding quality, as well as its commitment to continuous improvement.

“Hyster is privileged to receive this recognition as acknowledgement of our effort to deliver durable, reliable lift trucks that continually exceed the demands of our customers,” said John Zarring, National Accounts Manager, Hyster. “It is not only a testament to the quality of our products, but also our commitment to building partnerships with our customers to help improve their operational efficiency, and lower their total cost of ownership.

Suppliers who participate in the Achieving Excellence Program are evaluated annually in several key performance categories, including quality, cost management, delivery, technical support and wavelength, which is a measure of responsiveness. John Deere Supply Management created the program in 1991 to provide a supplier evaluation and feedback process that promotes continuous improvement.

Based in Greenville, North Carolina, Hyster Company is part of NACCO Materials Handling Group (NMHG), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hyster-Yale Materials Handling, Inc.
