“Our suppliers play a huge role in helping GM deliver compelling vehicles to our customers,” stated Grace Lieblein, GM Vice President, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “Supplier of the Year winners have outstanding track records for consistently meeting our business needs, while also supporting our cultural priorities.”

The award was accepted on behalf of Metaldyne and its employees by Thomas Amato, President and CEO, Metaldyne LLC, and Stephanie Jett, Metaldyne’s Vice President of Sales – Vibration Control Systems.

“Being recognised a General Motors’ Supplier of the Year is an exciting acknowledgement for all Metaldyne employees,” stated Amato. “All of us at Metaldyne strive to provide General Motors and all our customers unrivalled support and leading technology, and we will continue delivering the best possible products and services to our customers well into the future.”
