Mann+Hummel has welcomed its inclusion by GM as a recipient of a 2019 Supplier of the Year award for the 25th time.

The recognition took place at a virtual ceremony honouring the recipients of the company’s 28th annual Supplier of the Year awards.

“Our entire global organisation is once again proud to receive this recognition from General Motors ,” said Mann+Hummel OE president and GM, Harald Späth. “This is the 25th time Mann+Hummel has received this award, which is more than any other supplier.

“It’s proof we work consistently and globally to align with our customers’ values and targets.  We remain committed to doing our part in helping General Motors being successful as one of the leaders in the automotive industry.”

During the event, GM recognised 116 of its best suppliers from 15 countries, which have consistently exceeded GM’s expectations, created outstanding value or introduced innovations to the company.

The awards ceremony was originally scheduled as a live-event to be held in March, but was postponed due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The recognition is for supplier performance in the 2019 calendar year.

“Our suppliers play a key role in delivering the products, services and experiences our customers deserve; and these award-winning suppliers went above and beyond our expectations,” said GM vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain, Shilpan Amin.

“We also believe it’s important at this point in time to thank our entire supply base for their efforts the last few months to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19.

“Not only have we been able to safely restart our manufacturing operations, our suppliers played a key role in assisting our initiatives to increase the supply of ventilators and personal protection equipment (PPE) for frontline health care workers to help save lives and keep communities safe.”

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

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