TROY, Mich., Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Meritor, Inc. (NYSE: MTOR), a leading global supplier of drivetrain, mobility, braking and aftermarket solutions for commercial vehicle and industrial markets, recently honored John Steven Galligher with its Lifetime Achievement Award for Manufacturing Engineering.

Galligher earned the award for distinguished contributions to the development and advancement of carrier components and gearing manufacturing processes.

During his career, he has directed the installation and launch of more than 30 manufacturing projects, developed quality systems for initial plant start-up, improved advanced quality control methods at two plants and provided mechanical design and implementation for seven robotic machine tending projects. He has also provided counsel to several facilities, including Sisamex, Meritor's joint venture in Monterrey, Mexico.

"Steve always thinks like a leader," said Chris Snodgrass, vice president, Axles and Drivelines, North America. "He delivers on commitments and serves as a role model for others. We are proud to honor his many accomplishments with this award."

The recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award for Manufacturing Engineering is selected by a committee composed of members from the company's Manufacturing, Industrialization, Supply Chain, and Engineering groups. Nominations were submitted in early 2012 for the 2011 fiscal year.

Galligher has been with Meritor for 34 years. He joined the company in 1978 as a senior manufacturing specialist after an eight-year career at General Motors. He has held a variety of management positions since transferring to the company's facility in Asheville, N.C.
