SAG México receives Masters of Quality Award from Daimler Truck North America

For the fifth time, the team of the Mexico-based subsidiary of the Salzburger Aluminium Group (SAG) was recently awarded the Masters of Quality Award by Daimler Truck North America (DTNA). The award recognises those suppliers who guarantee top quality in terms of both product quality and service. SAG México is a producer of lightweight components for automotive industries with two locations and more than 400 employees in México City/Tlalnepantla and Monterrey. The product spectrum ranges from aluminium and steel tanks for trucks to air pressure accumulators and air reservoirs to lightweight components for trucks, buses and automobiles.

DTNA’s annual award programme recognises outstanding suppliers who achieve high scores in the areas of quality, delivery, technology and cost based on a balanced scorecard. DTNA presents the award annually on a recurring basis to the best supplier companies for exceptional commitment to product quality and overall performance. This is the fifth time that SAG México has been ensuite with this important award.

“We are proud to have won the Masters of Quality Award again this year, making us one of DTNA’s best suppliers. With ongoing quality measures and a great team, we have managed to succeed as a top supplier with consistent performance for DTNA as well as other customers in the North American commercial vehicle industry for years now. Our specialty throughout the group is to work with our customers to develop customised products for sustainable mobility and reliably deliver them just in sequence in large series,” says Karin Exner-Wöhrer, CEO of Salzburger Aluminium Group.

SAG México’s annual turnover in 2022 was around EUR 72 million.
