Ann Arbor, Michigan (September 14, 2022) – Clarience Technologies recognized over a dozen top-performing suppliers with its 2022 Supplier Achievement Award at its inaugural two-day Supplier Summit earlier this week. The event brought over 100 leading suppliers from five continents to Clarience Technologies headquarters in Southfield, Michigan, and Ann Arbor, Michigan, on the University of Michigan campus. The event underpinned the innovative success and global leadership displayed by Clarience Technologies since its establishment in 2020.
“Electric, autonomous, and connected technologies are changing the transportation industry more today than we’ve ever seen in our lifetime,” said David McKean, Executive Vice President of Strategic Initiatives and Business Development for Clarience Technologies.
Kevin Krause, Vice President of Global Procurement at Clarience Technologies, added, “We are committed to work with leading suppliers who share Clarience Technologies’ commitment to quality and excellence, and who proactively think boldly to be the disruptor — not the disrupted.”
Suppliers who understand this sentiment become key partners for Clarience Technologies and Supplier Achievement Award winners represent fewer than the top one percent of their overall supplier partners.
Southfield, Michigan-based Clarience Technologies is the parent company to Truck-Lite, the North American leader in LED lighting solutions for commercial transportation, as well as Road Ready advanced telematics; ECCO Safety Group; DAVCO filtration solutions; Pressure Systems International (P.S.I.); and several other technology brands.
