During the event, General Motors (GM) recognized 133 of its best suppliers from 15 countries that have consistently exceeded GM’s expectations, created outstanding value or introduced innovations to the company.
This is the first time Comau has received the award.
“We hold our suppliers to a high bar,” says Steve Kiefer, GM senior vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “They went above and beyond to deliver the innovations and quality that will help us earn customers for life.”
More than half of the suppliers are repeat winners from 2017.
The Supplier of the Year award winners were chosen by a global team of GM purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing, and logistics executives. Winners were selected based on performance criteria in Product Purchasing, Global Purchasing and Manufacturing Services, Customer Care and Aftersales, and Logistics.
"Comau is honored to be named as a Supplier of the Year by our respected customer General Motors,” says Brendan Blennerhassett, Comau North America president & CEO. This award signifies our strength and expertise in industrial automation and reflects upon our mission to ensure our customers make valuable technical and operational improvements to achieve the best possible results.
