Great Dane has announced plans for the company’s first Supplier Summit & Innovation Challenge taking place Sept. 28 to 30, 2015 in Savannah, Ga.

The goal of the Supplier Summit is to provide a forum for celebrating the contributions of Great Dane’s key suppliers with an awards dinner on the 28th. The Innovation Challenge is an optional event designed to bring together talented and creative resources to create new products, processes or services for Great Dane and its customers.

The Innovation challenge will also provide suppliers with an opportunity to have collaborative discussions with a team of Great Dane managers and leaders with the goal of developing new business solutions that leverage both company’s areas of expertise.

“We’re truly excited about these new opportunities to collaborate with our key suppliers,” said Rick Mullinix, Great Dane’s executive vice president of engineering. “We look forward to strong participation and a lot of great new ideas in the process.”

Interested suppliers who haven’t registered for one of Great Dane’s informational webinars can find more information by contacting Great Dane’s vice president of marketing, Brandie Fuller at
