General Motors Honors Top Suppliers

    Detroit (ots/PRNewswire) -

    - Ceremonies Celebrate World Class Performance

    General Motors Corp. presented 78 companies with its prestigious Supplier of the Year award today at a celebration held at GM's Vehicle Engineering Center in Warren, Michigan.

    Suppliers are an integral part of GM's global product and performance, and each of the winners was recognized for its exceptional contributions to the company in 2004.

    "As a global automaker, GM needs a globally competitive supply base and many of these companies demonstrated they are capable of supporting GM operations around the world," said Bo Andersson, GM Vice President, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. "As GM Supplier of the Year winners their performance raises the bar for all automotive suppliers in the industry."

    The GM Supplier of the Year program began in 1992, and each year a global team of purchasing, engineering, manufacturing and logistics executives determines the winners. Its decisions are based on supplier performance in the areas of quality, service, technology and price.

    Joining Andersson in honoring the recipients were GM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Rick Wagoner; GM Vice Chairman and Chief Financial Officer, John Devine; GM Vice President, Global Engineering, Jim Queen; and GM Vice President, Global Manufacturing and Labor Relations, Gary Cowger.

    Of the 78 recipients, MANN+HUMMEL GmbH of Germany and Magee Rieter Automotive Systems of the United States are the only companies to receive Supplier of the Year honors every year since the award's inception in 1992.
