MBW: A Two Time Diamond Supplier Award Winner

Marion Body Works, Inc. has been selected as one of Navistar’s Diamond Supplier Award winners for the second consecutive year by Navistar Defense. Recognized for their extraordinary support and excellent quality on a variety of 7000 MilCOTs programs, Marion Body Works accepted their award on February 13th.

Marion supported Navistar Defense in providing consistent responsiveness to support the fluctuating material delivery dates as well as correcting any issues that arose during manufacturing. Small yet diverse for Navistar Defense’s suppliers, Marion has designed, built and is building seven different vehicle body variants for use in five different countries.

Marion is both honored and humbled by the acceptance of this award. Curtis Ignacio, President & CEO, along with Mike Foley, Vice-President of Sales, were present at Navistar’s banquet to accept the award. Thanks was given to Navistar for their strong, continued business relationship. Marion also expressed their gratitude in the opportunity to supply vehicle builds that are being utilized in our nation’s military units across the world.

Marion looks forward to the coming years of working with Navistar Defense and continually providing exceptional support, manufacturing, and service to them.
