Hankook Tire has been recognized with a World Excellence Award from Ford Motor Company, for its performance as an outstanding global supplier. The award honours suppliers that have aligned themselves with the “values and operating practices” of Ford while reaching the highest quality, technology and delivery performance.
Hankook Tire was the only tire supplier honoured at this year’s World Excellence Awards. This marks the third time since 2005 that Hankook Tire has received this distinction from Ford.
