Ford Honors Pirelli Tire as a Top Performing Global Supplier


Ford Motor Co. has honored Pirelli Tire North America Inc. as a top performing global supplier during the 17th annual World Excellence Awards. Pirelli was presented with a Green Pillar Award by Hau Thai-Tang, Ford’s group vice president of global purchasing.

This Green Pillar Award recognizes Pirelli’s leadership in sustainability and support of Ford’s ‘Reinventing Green’ brand pillar: thoughtful design or purposeful technology that provides convenience, entertainment and enhances the overall vehicle experience.

“We are thrilled to receive this award from Ford, a partner whom we value tremendously,” says Pierluigi Dinelli, chairman and CEO of Pirelli Tire North America. “We look forward to continuing our long-standing technical partnership and providing our high-quality, technologically advanced tires. Our goal is to meet both Ford’s unique driving needs of their vehicle portfolio, and Ford’s sustainability focus, which is an important driver for our company as well.”

Ford recognized 52 top-performing suppliers for achieving excellence in key areas including quality, cost, performance and delivery. The World Excellence Awards were given in ten categories, including five new categories: Quality Pillar, Green Pillar, Safe Pillar, Smart Pillar and Lincoln Luxury.

“Ford’s World Excellence Awards allow us to recognize and thank our partners who support us in all we do,” says Thai-Tang. “In a year with a record number of global product introductions, Pirelli demonstrated a strong commitment to both quality and performance, and we’re honored that they are a part of our one Ford team.”
