LLamasoft, the leading provider of enterprise supply chain design and decision-making solutions is proud to announce that it has been named a GM Supplier of the Year for 2018. The award was presented to LLamasoft by General Motors during its 27th annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony in Detroit.
General Motors recognized 133 suppliers from 15 countries that have consistently exceeded the automaker’s expectations, created outstanding value or introduced innovations to the company. More than half of the suppliers, including LLamasoft, are repeat winners from 2017.
“We hold our suppliers to a high bar,” said 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.”
“We are proud to be awarded the premier supplier distinction for the second year. The fact that we are one of the few enterprise software providers selected makes this especially meaningful,” said Toby Brzoznowski, co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer of LLamasoft. “This honor was made possible because of GM’s collaborative culture and advanced supply chain analytics maturity and most importantly, because of our employees who continue to drive value through hard work, innovation and commitment to customer success.”
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.
