SGS was presented with the Cummins US New Product Development Award at their 2017 US Supplier Conference held in Columbus, Indiana, earlier this month.

In all, 11 of more than 5,000 suppliers to Cummins’ businesses and functions achieved recognition for delivering exemplary service and support in a range of categories, including new product development.

“These suppliers have demonstrated and exceeded the qualities that we expect of all of our suppliers – high quality, on-time delivery, innovation, service and commitment to Cummins’ values,” said Tim Millwood, Vice President – Procurement. “They have been great partners to Cummins, working together with us to help our customers succeed. It’s called partnering for success.”

Over the last year, SGS has been diligent in supporting Cummins’ need for additional local developmental chassis dynamometer capabilities. The team pulled from across its network to leverage a combination of capabilities, assets and deep subject matter expertise to ensure they had the right local solution in place. Working closely with Cummins throughout the process, they were able to exceed timeline expectations.

“I’m proud of our teams in Columbus, Indiana and Aurora, Colorado, who were instrumental in earning us this impressive distinction from one of our largest testing customers,” Vice President, US Operations Kelly Bertrand explained. “We are honored to be recognized for not just our commitment to providing the best service possible, but also for continuing to invest in and cultivate long term partnerships with our customers.”
