GM Announces its 2012 Supplier of the Year Winners

DETROIT – General Motors recognized 83 of its best global automotive suppliers Wednesday evening during its 21st annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony. The event was held at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit.

“Suppliers play a critical role in our business and we’re thrilled to recognize those we consider to be world-class,” said Grace Lieblein, GM vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “Each winning company consistently exceeded our expectations by being innovative, delivering high quality products and services on time and by creating outstanding value.”

The Supplier of the Year award is given to less than 1 percent of GM’s approximately 18,500 suppliers around the world. The winners are recognized for delivering innovative technology, superior quality, timely crisis management and competitive, total-enterprise cost solutions.

The companies have headquarters in 17 countries with regional manufacturing and support services all over the world. Of the 83 recipients, five are certified diverse suppliers and 46 are repeat winners from last year.

In addition to the Supplier of the Year awards, GM introduced an all-new honor called the Overdrive award. Four companies received this award, which recognizes suppliers who have undertaken extraordinary initiatives that drove exceptional results for GM’s business.

“The Overdrive Award recognizes those world-class companies that have truly gone above and beyond,” Lieblein said. “They have not only met the demands of our business, they have also demonstrated through their actions a great commitment to their communities.”

The 2012 General Motors Overdrive award recipients are:

 

  • Ideal Contracting, Detroit, Mich.
  • Clark Cutler McDermott, Franklin, Mass.
  • International Automotive Component Group, Southfield, Mich.
  • SL Corporation, South Korea.

The Supplier of the Year and Overdrive award winners are chosen by a global team of GM purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing and logistics executives.
