Great Dane recognized its top supplier partners during the 8th Annual Supplier Summit and Awards in Savannah, Georgia. The 2022 Supplier Awards recognize a range of suppliers across the country who provide key components to produce Great Dane's trailers and truck bodies.

Suppliers gathered at the Hyatt Regency Savannah, situated along the beautiful Savannah riverfront in the city where Great Dane was founded in 1900. Guests gathered for a night of dinner, connections, and recognition.

For the past eight years, Great Dane has recognized its valued supplier partners during the company's annual Supplier Summit, which brings together Great Dane leadership with supplier partners to share in communication and processes to drive success together in the coming year. The Supplier Awards recognize excellence in a range of categories including flatbed and refrigerated suppliers, along with large and small suppliers, and service and quality excellence. Winners have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to excellence, quality, and service in supplying Great Dane's manufacturing network with the components needed to build high quality trailers and truck bodies across the nation.

"We rely on our shared partnerships, at times spanning decades, to meet the needs of the transportation industry," said Great Dane President Dean Engelage. "We join together to continue that legacy of open dialogue to elevate our manufacturing environment in what looks to be a year full of growth and opportunities."

Along with the awards, Great Dane manufacturing leaders shared a look at the year ahead, thanking the gathered supplier network for their commitment to quality during a challenging year for the transportation industry. Through it all, Great Dane and its partners continue to drive forward, working together to deliver the high-quality products and services that move goods across the country.

"This has been extremely tough year for all manufacturing companies. While the path forward does not look much easier, it is thanks to the partnerships we enjoy today which will be critical in accomplishing what lies ahead of us," said Great Dane EVP of Manufacturing Brian Sage.
