|WARREN, Ohio - Delphi Automotive Systems is one of five
companies to be named Detroit Diesel Corp.'s top suppliers for 1999.
Electric's Rio Bravo Electricos (RBE) IV facility in Cd. Juarez, Mexico, was recognized as
a "1999 Supplier of the Year" for superior quality and delivery of wiring
harnesses, as measured by Detroit Diesel's supplier rating for calendar year 1999. Delphi
Packard Electric supplies sensor and injector wiring harnesses to Detroit Diesel's engine
plant in Redford, Mich. Detroit Diesel manufactures heavy-duty diesel and alternative fuel
engines for a variety of applications, such as heavy-duty trucks, commercial construction
equipment, buses and boats.
"This recognition from Detroit Diesel is a good example of Delphi's
precision-manufactured products meeting the high-quality standards of industries other
than the traditional automotive market," said Drew Verbosky, Delphi Packard Electric
sales account manager. "One of Delphi's strategies is to supply quality systems and
components across diverse markets."
Detroit Diesel evaluates major suppliers in the areas of quality, delivery, cost and
technical support, with the goal of waste elimination through enhanced communication and
coordination across the supply chain. Delphi Packard Electric's RBE IV facility assembles
200,000 wiring harnesses per year for Detroit Diesel.
