Lear says it has been recognised as a GM Supplier of the Year during General Motors’ 29th annual Supplier of the Year ceremony.

This is the 20th time Lear has received the Supplier of the Year award.

Lear also received the Overdrive award for developing second-row seating functionality in GM’s full-size trucks and creating the Lear Safe Work Playbook and sharing it with the industry.

Lear was one of 26 companies to be selected in 2020 as an Overdrive winner – a distinction reserved for suppliers who display outstanding achievement within GM’s Global Purchasing and Supply Chain organisation.

“We are honoured to be one of the few suppliers recognised by GM as both a Supplier of the Year and Overdrive award winner in 2020, despite the circumstances we faced last year,” said Lear president and CEO, Ray Scott.

“It demonstrates the strong collaboration and valued partnership between Lear and General Motors.”

“Together, we are focused on delivering products with the highest standards of safety, innovation and quality to consumers. I would like to thank Lear’s Seating and Safe Work Playbook teams for their commitment to hard work and employee health and safety.

As part of the Supplier of the Year ceremony, GM recognised 122 of its best suppliers from 16 countries for performance in the 2020 calendar year.

The annual awards highlight global suppliers which distinguish themselves by exceeding GM’s requirements.

“As GM works to achieve a future with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion, we are proud to have innovative and dedicated suppliers around the world as partners in this mission,” added GM VP Global Purchasing and Supply Chain, Shilpan Amin.

“Throughout a challenging year, our suppliers have showed resilience and dedication in working toward our shared goal of long-term sustainability for our planet and the communities we serve, while meeting our present needs.”

The 2020 Supplier of the Year winners were selected by a global team of GM purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing and logistics leaders.

Winners were chosen based on performance criteria in Product Purchasing, Global Purchasing and Manufacturing Services, Customer Care and Aftersales, as well as Logistics.
