by John Larkin

General Motors recognized 82 of its best global automotive suppliers representing 13 countries Tuesday evening with its 2011 General Motors Supplier of the Year award during the 20th annual awards presentation held at the Detroit Institute of the Arts.

“The Supplier of the Year award winners’ partnership, dedication and commitment to consistently perform above expectations played an important role in GM’s success in 2011,” said Bob Socia, vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “In 2012, we will continue to improve supplier relations to achieve a world class supply chain focused on quality, capacity management and total cost.”

The Corporation of the Year was Lear Corp., a supplier of seats and electrical components. Lear has been honored as a Supplier of the Year 13 times previously.

Of the 82 winning recipients, 63 have been recognized at least once since the awards began in 1992. Nineteen companies won the award for the first time, and three diversity suppliers were honored: ABC Group Inc., Chemico Mays LLC and Ideal Contracting, LLC.

The award recognizes the significant contributions of GM’s suppliers in 2011 as part of the company's global product and performance achievement. The winners represent GM’s view of the best the automotive industry has to offer in innovative technology, superior quality, outstanding launch support, crisis management and competitive total enterprise cost solutions.

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