DTNA’s Chief Operating Officer, Roger Nielsen, commented “Daimler Trucks North America is pleased to have awarded four of ConMet’s locations with the prestigious Masters of Quality Supplier Award, the newest being their plastics location in Monterrey, Mexico. ConMet’s wheel and hub plant in Monroe, North Carolina, is also the most awarded supplier at DTNA having received the award 26 times. I am proud of Daimler’s long standing partnership with ConMet, and pleased that ConMet continues to demonstrate a commitment to continuously improving their product quality as evidenced by these most recent awards.”
The additional ConMet plants that were recognized were:
Monroe, North Carolina – 26 years (the most times any supplier has been recognized)
Monterrey, Mexico (metals) – 13 years
Etowah, Tennessee – 6 years
“We are honored to have received this award and could not be more proud of each of our locations.

This is best reflected in the Masters of Quality Supplier award being given to our Monterrey Plastics location, one of the first plastics companies to ever receive this award.”
