GM’s Supplier of the Year awards were presented to 78 suppliers worldwide, less than 1% of its supply base, who have consistently exceeded GM’s expectations and created outstanding value. This is Metaldyne’s second consecutive year to receive the award from GM.

“These companies are the best-of-the-best suppliers, and deserving of special recognition for their outstanding contributions,” stated Steve Kiefer, GM Vice President, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “We need them to continue to bring us their most innovative technologies and highest quality services and work, and we will continue to win together for the benefit of our customers.”

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

“Being recognised as a General Motors’ Supplier of the Year for two consecutive years is an exciting acknowledgement for all Metaldyne employees,” stated Thomas Amato, President and CEO, Metaldyne LLC, and Co-President of Metaldyne Performance Group.

“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.”

The award was accepted on behalf of Metaldyne and its employees by Thomas Amato and George Lanni, Metaldyne’s Vice President of Sales – Sintered Products.
