Dana Incorporated has announced that it has been recognized by General Motors as an Overdrive Award winner as part of GM’s 30th annual Supplier of the Year awards, marking the fifth consecutive year Dana has been honored as a top supplier by GM. Dana was one of 31 companies from 12 countries to earn an Overdrive Award for 2021.
First presented in 2012, the Overdrive Award is a distinction reserved for suppliers who 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.
“Dana is honored to once again be named a top supplier to General Motors with the prestigious Overdrive Award as we continue to deliver a broad portfolio of innovative driveline, sealing, and thermal-management solutions for both internal-combustion and electrified vehicles,” said James Kamsickas, chairman and CEO of Dana Incorporated. “We are proud of our more than 116-year relationship with GM and look forward to continuing to collaborate with them as they drive toward a more sustainable and electrified future.”
“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.
