With Preh having received the award six times, GM recognized 132 of its best suppliers from 17 countries who have consistently exceeded GM's expectations, created outstanding value, or brought new innovations to the company. The announcement represented the most suppliers GM has awarded since the first Supplier of the Year ceremony in 1992.
"This is an opportunity for General Motors to honor those suppliers who are truly the best of the best," said Steve Kiefer, GM senior vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. "The automotive industry is transforming at an incredible rate. The relationships we have with our supply base mean everything when it comes to delivering a strong vehicle lineup today and the cutting-edge vehicles and mobility services of tomorrow."
More than 45 percent of this year's Supplier of the Year awardees are repeat winners from 2016.
GM's Supplier of the Year award is reserved for suppliers who distinguish themselves by meeting performance metrics for quality, execution, innovation, and total enterprise cost. Award winners represent companies who provide products and services to General Motors in the areas of vehicle components, supply chain and logistics, customer care and aftersales, and indirect services.
At the award ceremony Preh President and CEO Christoph Hummel said, "We are proud of having received this prestigious recognition again. The award demonstrates that our employees have done an excellent job, which has won us recognition as one of GM's best suppliers—now for the 6th time."
As a global automotive supplier, Preh employs about 7,000 people and generates revenue of well over €1 billion ($1.2 billion USD). Preh was founded in 1919 in Bad Neustadt a. d. Saale and has been part of the Joyson Group since 2011. Preh's development and manufacturing capabilities include, in particular, HMI systems for passenger cars and commercial vehicles, infotainment and connectivity solutions, as well as e-mobility control units.
