(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.

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.
