Navistar recognizes TKS Industrial Company’s excellent leadership in the execution of the Texas Manufacturing Plant new paint facility construction with its 2022 Supplier Excellence Award for Leadership in General Procurement

Troy, MI -- July 7, 2022

Navistar honors TKS with its 2022 Supplier Excellence Award for Leadership in General Procurement! Our heartfelt thanks to all of our TKS team members whose contributions and efforts truly earned the award. TKS prides itself on its “Customer First” approach to business and within its day-to-day operations. It’s great to see this philosophy embraced by our team members and recognized by our customers.

The success experienced this past year by TKS with Navistar is in large part a result of the collaborative approach taken by the Navistar team members. Working together, our teams were able to manage the Texas project successfully while navigating our way through the pandemic, labor and supply chain issues, as well as several other challenges capital projects of this scale generally experience. It is truly a pleasure to work with Navistar.

Thank you again to Navistar for the honor and to the TKS team for another job well done!

Bob Booth, President TKS Industrial Company
