EMC Corporation, the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced that, for the seventh time, it was named as a General Motors Supplier of the Year for its overall business performance in providing GM with world-class products and services.
“The Supplier of the Year award is always special, but EMC and the other 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 at General Motors. “EMC joins this truly world-class list of suppliers.”
The award recognizes the significant contributions of GM’s suppliers in 2009 as part of the company’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.

GM has a tremendous legacy around the globe for furthering supplier excellence and maximizing its competitive advantage while driving product development and performance. We are proud to contribute to the company’s global product and performance achievements.”
