DETROIT—Katcon Global S.A. de C.V. has been named a GM Supplier of the Year by General Motors during its 24th annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony on March 10 in Detroit.

GM recognized its best suppliers who have consistently exceeded GM’s expectations, created outstanding value, or brought new innovations to the company. The announcement represented the most suppliers GM has recognized since debuting the Supplier of the Year event in 1992. This is the 2nd time Katcon has received the award.

“We are focused on building positive supplier relationships, bringing new, customer-centric innovations to GM, and being the OEM of choice among suppliers,” said Steve Kiefer, GM vice-president, global purchasing and supply chain. “The companies we recognize tonight not only have brought innovation, they delivered it with the quality our customers deserve.”

Winning suppliers were chosen by a global team of GM purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing, and logistics executives and selected based on performance criteria in product purchasing, indirect purchasing, customer care and after sales, and logistics.
