PSA has held its 2020 Supplier Awards, which took place by videoconference from Poissy near Paris.

Some 12 suppliers were rewarded for QCD (Quality, Cost & Delivery) performance with PSA.

Michelin was given the Special President Award.

Peugeot Brand CEO, Jean-Philippe Imparato, also cited six suppliers of the new 208, who have made a major contribution following its Car of the Year 2020 title in March in Geneva.

In 2020, PSA recognised the excellence of its suppliers' performance in eight categories:

Quality First Award:

Garrett was rewarded for its achievements and commitment in terms of industrial development and production, while meeting PSA's quality requirements.

Competitiveness Award:

Fuyao and Eberspaecher received the award, which recognises their "exceptional cost-savings performance" (sales, processes, techniques, logistics) and their 2020 proposals for a cost-reduction portfolio in line with PSA targets.

Programme Management Award:

CEFA received the award in recognition of its performance in terms of the quality of deliverables, on-time delivery, cost control, project management, success of launches and technical expertise.

Innovation Products & Services Award:
Ekimetrics won the award in recognition of its ability to offer groundbreaking technical solutions and new value-creating services.

Aftermarket Performance Award:

Misfat and LPR have been rewarded for their performance in terms of quality, service and cost savings in the areas of Original and Multi-Brand spare parts.

Indirect Material Machinery and Equipment Award:

CBWEE and EDF secured the award, which reflects their performance in terms of service and quality, cost, on-time delivery and responsiveness.

Corporate Social Responsibility Award:

CAP Gemini and ATOs were rewarded for their actions based on four criteria: environmental performance, social performance, ethics and control of the sub-contracting chain. Performance was assessed by an external firm commissioned by PSA using a questionnaire based on international sustainable development standards.

The Special President Award went to Michelin for its commitment and ability to offer breakthrough solutions, overcome challenges and anticipate changes with a view to continuous improvement.

Along with the trophies, Imparato also honoured six suppliers of the new Peugeot 208, elected Car of the Year 2020: Simoldes, Polmotors, Treves, Regal, Dicastal and Sumitomo.

PSA chairman, Carlos Tavares concluded by noting the current health crisis must be used as an opportunity to strengthen links with suppliers in order to build a greener, innovative and solid automotive industry.

He also insisted on the "strong expectations of Groupe PSA towards its partners in terms of quality, costs and deliveries to overcome and win, together, the challenge of the recovery of the automotive industry," said a PSA statement.
