At the Daimler Supplier Award, the Daimler group gives awards to outstanding suppliers. Among hundreds of suppliers globally, a total of ten awards were given in four categories: Quality, Innovation, Sustainability and Inspiration.
“It was in the new Inspiration category that LG Electronics was recognized for its in-vehicle touchscreen displays featured in both Mercedes-Benz Cars and Daimler Trucks,” LG said Wednesday in a statement.
