M is proud to honor our best suppliers with the Supplier of the Year award, an award that we believe is the most meaningful honor in the supplier industry,” said Bo Andersson, GM Group Vice President, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “During these difficult economic times, it’s more important than ever to recognize performance in our supply base. These suppliers are the best of the best and we want to honor them for their tremendous performance.”
“Laird Technologies is honored to receive this award for the fourth year in a row,” said Randy Andreen, Laird Technologies’ Vice President and General Manager, Telematics Business Unit. “We consider GM one of our strategic partners and are proud to be honored by this important customer. We are committed to providing strategic solutions and continuing our relationship well into the future.”
The GM Supplier of the Year award began as a global program in 1992. Winners are selected by a global team of executives from purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing, and logistics, who base their decisions on supplier performance in the areas of quality, service, technology, and price. This year, General Motors honored 99 suppliers for their outstanding performance in 2008.
