Dayco, a leading engine products and drive systems supplier for the automotive, industrial and aftermarket industries, has received the ‘Best Plant Award’ from the PSA Group, the French manufacturer of automobiles sold and marketed under the Peugeot, Citroën and DS brands.
The award, presented during PSA’s 12th annual ‘best supplier’ awards, has recognised the Dayco belt manufacturing plant in Manoppello, Italy, for its performance in manufacturing excellence according to the PSA Group’s quality standards.
Dayco CEO, John Bohenick said: “We thank PSA for relying on Dayco to continue delivering essential engine components and drive systems that help them design, manufacture and sell vehicles worldwide.”
The plant produces timing belts and Dayco’s first-to-market timing belt-in-oil system used in multiple applications, engines and industries.
Opened in 1975 and acquired by Dayco in 1993, the Manoppello plant is also home to one of Dayco’s newest products, the Electric Power Steering Belt.
Carlo Fulgenzi, Manoppello plant manager, said: “It’s really a pleasure for me, and for all of the people that work in this plant, to see our daily efforts recognized by our customers, especially when the award comes from one of the most important global vehicle manufacturers.
“This award gives us additional motivation to work even harder and continue to manufacture sound products that perform without fail.”
