“The Supplier of the Year award is always special, but those suppliers recognized this year have risen above and beyond the call during one of the most challenging years in GM history,” said Bob Socia, vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. ”This is truly a world-class list of suppliers.”

 

The award recognizes the significant contributions of GM’s suppliers in 2009 as part of GM’s global product and performance achievements. The Supplier of the Year program started in 1992, and each year a global team of purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing and logistics executives determines the winners.
The decisions are based on supplier performance in the areas of quality, service, technology and price.
