General Motors recognized its top global partners through its 29th annual Supplier of the Year awards for performance in the 2020 calendar year.
Recipients of the Supplier of the Year award included three Canadian companies, all of which are multi-year winners: ABC Technologies, Linamar and Magna International.
The awards highlight global suppliers that distinguish themselves by exceeding GM’s requirements, in turn providing GM customers with innovative technologies and among the highest quality in the automotive industry.
“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,” said Shilpan Amin, GM vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain.
“Throughout a challenging year, our suppliers have shown 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,” Amin said.
“We are pleased with what we’ve accomplished together in the past year and we are excited by the opportunity that lies ahead.”
