LAKE FOREST, Ill. (Business Wire) -- Tenneco Inc. (NYSE: TEN) facilities in Gliwice, Poland and Ligonier, Indiana have been selected as winners of 2012 Ford Motor Company World Excellence Awards, Ford announced at an awards ceremony last week.

The company's Gliwice Ride Performance plant won a Gold Award in the category of shock absorbers, while its Clean Air plant in Ligonier was acknowledged with a Recognition of Achievement Award for warranty improvement.

“Ford's partnership with our suppliers played a pivotal role in the progress we made on the One Ford plan in 2012,” said Tony Brown, Ford group vice president, global purchasing. “Our World Excellence Award winners have shown a dedication to excellence. Thank you for helping Ford serve customers with the best vehicles in the world.”
