DETROIT—General Motors recognized 68 of its best global automotive suppliers Wednesday evening during its 22nd-annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony.

“Our suppliers play an important role in helping GM deliver compelling vehicles to our customers,” said Grace Lieblein, GM VP, 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.”

Fewer than one 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.

In addition to presenting its Supplier of the Year awards, GM also honored four suppliers with its Overdrive Award, recognizing suppliers who have undertaken extraordinary initiatives and driven exceptional results for GM’s business.

“The Overdrive Award is given to those world-class suppliers that have gone above and beyond,” Lieblein said.  “Each has met the demands of our business, while at the same time demonstrating values important to GM and our communities.”

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