AAM Named Overdrive Award Winner by General Motors

AAM was one of 31 companies to earn an Overdrive Award for 2021.

American Axle & Manufacturing Holdings Inc. (AAM) was recently recognized by General Motors (GM) as an Overdrive Award winner during GM’s 30th annual Supplier of the Year awards. AAM was one of 31 companies to earn an Overdrive Award for 2021. The company celebrated honorees at an awards ceremony in Phoenix, Arizona, last week.

First presented in 2012, the Overdrive Award is a distinction reserved for suppliers that display outstanding achievement across the global purchasing and supply chain organization’s key priorities. These include sustainability, innovation, relationships, total enterprise cost, launch excellence and safety.

“AAM is proud to once again receive GM’s Overdrive Award,” said David C. Dauch, AAM chairman and CEO. “We are grateful for GM’s recognition of the extraordinary efforts by the AAM team to address the many supply chain issues that occurred this past year. Supporting our global customers is a top priority for AAM, and we are honored that GM recognizes that work.”

“This year’s Supplier of the Year event was special not only because it’s the 30th anniversary of the program, but because it provided us with the opportunity to recognize our suppliers for persevering through one of the most challenging years the industry has ever faced,” said Shilpan Amin, GM vice president, global purchasing and supply chain. “These top suppliers showed resilience and reinforced their commitment to pursuing sustainability and innovation. Through our strong relationships and collaboration, GM and our suppliers are poised to build a brighter future for generations to come.”

A global, cross-functional team selected the 2021 Supplier of the Year and Overdrive Award winners based on performance criteria in Product Purchasing, Global Purchasing and Manufacturing Services, Customer Care and Aftersales and Logistics.
