Tenneco’s “Top Five”
Tenneco is one of the world’s leading designers, manufacturers and distributors of clean air and ride performance products and systems for the automotive, commercial truck and off-highway markets and the aftermarket. The company employs 30,000 people and operates 93 manufacturing facilities and 15 technical centers around the world.
Tenneco’s principal brand names are Monroe®, Walker®, XNOx® and Clevite®Elastomer.
- Impressive Growth:
With total revenue of $8.2 billion in 2015, Tenneco has delivered revenue growth of 20 percent since 2010, outpacing global industry production by 20 percentage points. Tenneco benefits from a diverse portfolio of business with the world’s leading original equipment manufacturers and aftermarket distributors and installers, supplying more than 340 OE programs globally.
In 2015, Tenneco received General Motors’ award for Supplier of the Year and was recognized by John Deere as a Partner-Level Supplier. These and more than a dozen other awards received in 2015 all demonstrate that our customers recognize and value Tenneco as a leading supplier of Clean Air and Ride Performance products.
- Key differentiator:
What sets Tenneco apart is a unique combination of leading-edge technology, manufacturing expertise and dedication to customer service. Partnering with our global customers, we deliver Clean Air products and systems designed to meet global emissions regulations anywhere in the world—for any powertrain application. Our Ride Performance product line meets the increasing demand for advanced suspension technologies that enhance vehicle performance.
From a global network of engineering centers and a strategically located manufacturing footprint, we are everywhere our customers need us to be.
- Deep roots:
The company’s history as a stand-alone entity began in 1999, when it emerged from a conglomerate consisting of six businesses — shipbuilding, packaging, farm and construction equipment, gas transmission, automotive and chemicals. Through various public offerings, sales, spin-offs and mergers, the company divested all of its businesses except automotive and packaging, and these were separated in 1999, leaving Tenneco Automotive as the lone remaining part of the original company.
The automotive entities that remained showcase a rich history that defines Tenneco to present day. Its earliest business, the predecessor to the Walker emission control business, began in 1888 and the Monroe ride control operations trace back to 1916.
- Committed to the MHCC:
The Michigan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce enhances successful business relationships by strengthening Tenneco’s supplier diversity processes. It provides an environment for business development between qualified Hispanic MBEs and Tenneco; it also allows us to align Tenneco’s supplier diversity process with the long term diversity strategy of our customers.
- Investing in Diversity:
As part of Tenneco’s supplier diversity process, Tenneco two years ago joined the Michigan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and other diversity organizations to identify qualified MBEs to strengthen our supply chain and help Tenneco retain a competitive advantage in the market place. In just the past three years, we have more than doubled the number of diverse suppliers we partner with, and have nearly tripled our total diversity spend. Currently Tenneco buys more than $200 Million in services and parts from diverse suppliers in North America.
