DENSO, a mobility supplier, has earned the Volunteer Safety Through Accountability and Recognition (STAR) award from the Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administration. This is the fourth time the Athens, Tennessee, plant has received the state’s highest honor for workplace safety and health.
“DENSO once again meets the high standards set to receive this award. The company has proven its ability to uphold an excellent safety record,” said Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development Deputy Commissioner Dewayne Scott. “It takes effort and determination from everyone at the facility to create and maintain a safe and healthy workplace.”
DENSO is a global mobility supplier that develops advanced technology and components for nearly every vehicle make and model on the road today. The company has 200 facilities that produce thermal, powertrain, mobility, electrification and electronic systems.
“While we always strive for manufacturing excellence and to support our customers, there is nothing more important than protecting our employees,” said Marty Deschenes, president of DENSO’s Athens facility. “We are grateful to everyone who helps us accomplish this, particularly our employees, our broader DENSO team and the State of Tennessee.”
In North America, DENSO employs more than 27,000 engineers, researchers and skilled workers across 51 sites in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, with more than 17,700 employees located in the United States at 41 sites.
