GM recognised 118 of its best suppliers from 15 countries that have consistently exceeded GM’s expectations, created outstanding value or brought new innovations to the company. The announcement represented the most suppliers GM has recognised since debuting the Supplier of the Year event in 1992. This is the eleventh consecutive year that Höegh Autoliners has received the Supplier of the Year award.
“We are focused on building positive supplier relationships, bringing new, customer-centric innovations to GM and being the OEM of choice among suppliers,” said Steve Kiefer, GM vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “The companies we recognise tonight not only have brought innovation, they delivered it with the quality our customers deserve.”
More than half of the suppliers are repeat winners from 2015.
Winning suppliers were chosen by a global team of GM purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing and logistics executives and selected based on performance criteria in Product Purchasing, Indirect Purchasing, Customer Care and Aftersales, and Logistics.
