For the second year in a row, T/CCI Manufacturing, a world leader in compressor technology including reciprocating, swash plate, wobble plate, and variable compressor designs, has been awarded the Navistar International Diamond Supplier Award.
Each year Navistar Inc. presents the Diamond Supplier Award to strategic suppliers who play an instrumental role in helping Navistar reach significant achievements. In 2018, with the help of key suppliers like T/CCI, Navistar was able to gain re-entry into the class 4/5 truck market with the CV, introduce the HV vocational series truck and increase market penetration with the A26 engine. They were also able to drive market share growth with their LT and RH on-highway tractors.
As part of this select group, T/CCI represents the top two percent of the company's supply base that helps Navistar improve customer wait times and exceed expectations for quality, delivery, technology, and cost.
"To be recognized as a world-leading supplier by Navistar two years in a row is an incredible recognition, and a testament to the quality of our work, products and service," T/CCI President Richard Demirjian said. "Through strategic positioning of our team and facilities throughout the world, we're able to build a network that delivers on the highest quality of products and service to our customers from North America to Asia."
T/CCI has been a Navistar supply partner since 2013, providing the QP7H15 to the Navistar OEM and aftermarket sectors for heavy duty trucking. The QP7H is the leading design in the industry for the heavy-duty truck and construction market. An anchor product for T/CCI, the 7H has a combination of advanced features including the ability to operate with lower oil circulation and less clutch wear, providing the customer with a longer lasting heavy-duty compressor.
T/CCI also supplies the majority of Navistar's school bus compressors for their Tulsa, OK bus plant. The QP21 makes up the majority of their supply along with a handful other models to fit various needs.
