TRB Lightweight Structures say that it has been received an award from powertrain manufacturer Cummins for its efforts to minimise the disruption caused by Covid-19.

TRB has been named as a recipient of a 2020 Cummins Covid-19 Outstanding Supplier Award, acknowledging suppliers that have gone ‘above and beyond’ to support Cummins throughout the global pandemic, the company said.

According to the company, despite the pandemic, it was able to set up a new high-volume production facility in the USA and begin supplying Cummins with battery components for electric vehicles.

‘The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all aspects of our lives, both in business and personally,’ said Rachel Lanning, global sourcing director Cummins. ‘In a time when so many factors are beyond our control, Cummins is grateful to have dedicated supplier partners such as TRB.’
