Delphi Automotive Systems was awarded top honors from Mexico's President Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de Leon by receiving first place of the Energy Savings Award in a ceremony held at the official residence of Los Pinos. The Energy Savings Award ceremony was part of the 63rd Anniversary of the Mexican National Energy Commission -- Mexico's state-owned power company.
Presented to Delphi Delco Electronics Division, the award was created by the Mexican Government, and granted through the National Energy Commission, as public recognition to institutions and companies that implement successful energy savings practices that drive efficient utilization of energy. The annual award consists of two phases that include plant visits to verify the results of the energy savings initiatives.
"It is a great honor for the Delphi Delco Electronics Mexico Division to receive the Energy Savings Award from the Federal Commission of Energy because of the public recognition of our energy savings practices and of the outstanding team work it has implied," said Barry Goodrich, Managing Director at Deltronicos operations. "Together, the Deltronicos, Delnosa, Rimir and CMM
plants were able to demonstrate our commitment to the environment through our permanent energy savings projects."
"Last year, our Deltronicos plant received second place which gave us more incentive to be recognized this year as the winner. All employees play a key role in helping us save energy and through their outstanding efforts we have reduced the energy use in these four plants, helped the environment and our plant costs," Goodrich added.

Delphi Delco installed its first plant in Matamoros, Mexico, in 1979 and since then, the division has received several quality awards from OEMs worldwide.
