General Motors Co. in Detroit today announced it has recognized 134 companies from 16 countries for its Supplier of the Year awards. Additionally, 31 suppliers from 12 countries earned GM’s Overdrive Awards.

The Supplier of the Year award recognizes distinguished global suppliers that exceed GM’s requirements, in turn providing GM customers with innovative technologies and among the highest quality in the automotive industry.

First presented in 2012, the Overdrive Award is a distinction reserved for suppliers who display outstanding achievement across the global purchasing and supply chain organization’s key priorities. They include sustainability, innovation, relationships, total enterprise cost, launch excellence, and safety.

“This year’s Supplier of the Year event was special not only because it’s the 30th anniversary of the program, but because it provided us with the opportunity to recognize our suppliers for persevering through one of the most challenging years the industry has ever faced,” says Shilpan Amin, GM vice president of global purchasing and supply chain.

“These top suppliers showed resilience and reinforced their commitment to pursuing sustainability and innovation. Through our strong relationships and collaboration, GM and our suppliers are poised to build a brighter future for generations to come.”

The Supplier of the Year and Overdrive Award winners were selected by a global cross functional team based on performance criteria in product purchasing, global purchasing and manufacturing services, customer care and aftersales, and logistics.
