GM Names Ideal Contracting Among Top Suppliers


DETROIT — Ideal Contracting was named a General Motors Supplier of the Year during the automaker’s 22nd annual awards ceremony. The event was held last month at the Cobo Center in Detroit.

GM’s exclusive Supplier of the Year honor was presented to 68 suppliers worldwide who have consistently exceeded GM’s expectations and created outstanding value. This is the seventh time Ideal Contracting has received the award.

“Our suppliers play an important role in helping GM deliver compelling vehicles to our customers,” said Grace Lieblein, GM vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “Supplier of the Year winners have outstanding track records for consistently meeting our business needs, while also supporting our cultural priorities.”

Less than 1 percent of GM’s suppliers around the world receive the Supplier of the Year award.  Winners are recognized for delivering innovative technology, superior quality, timely crisis management and competitive, total-enterprise cost solutions.

“Ideal Contracting is honored to receive its seventh GM Supplier of the Year Award and the tenth awarded to an Ideal Group company,” said Loren Venegas, president of The Ideal Group, “The Ideal Contracting’s team takes great pride in safely delivering construction projects that meet and exceed the customer’s expectations. We are especially proud to bring the Supplier of the Year award home to Southwest Detroit; the accomplishment belongs to many; our employees, families, suppliers, community partners and neighbors.”
