Miner Enterprises has been recognized as a Trinity Premium Supplier, the only “Direct Supplier” selected.
Railcar manufacturer and lessor TrinityRail announced earlier this year it would streamline the awards program to recognize one Direct Supplier and one Indirect Supplier, rather than selecting premium suppliers within each of its commodity and logistics services groups, according to Miner.
To earn the award, Miner said it exceeded annual on-time delivery requirements (greater than 90% OTD over the year) and quality expectations (DPPM under its control limit every month); actively participated in supply chain initiatives; worked on cost reduction initiatives; and collaborated on new product development projects.
“We set our sights, every year, on earning recognition from our customers through innovative partnering and going above and beyond their expectations,” said Ric Biehl, President and General Manager of Miner, which supplies draft gears, brake beams, outlet gates and unloading systems, constant-contact side bearings and other components. “I’m just so proud of the focused effort the Miner teams put in, day in and day out, and the relationships they create in that process. We are ever grateful to TrinityRail for recognizing that collaboration.”
