Hankook Tire Recognized By General Motors As A 2018 Supplier Of The Year Winner

This is the third time Hankook Tire has received the award.


Hankook Tire was named a GM Supplier of the Year by General Motors during its 27th annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony held Wednesday, May 15, in Detroit.

During the event, GM recognized 133 of its best suppliers from 15 countries that have consistently exceeded GM’s expectations, created outstanding value or introduced innovations to the company. 

This is the third time Hankook Tire has received the award.

“We hold our suppliers to a high bar,” said Steve Kiefer, GM senior vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “They went above and beyond to deliver the innovations and quality that will help us earn customers for life.”  

More than half of the suppliers are repeat winners from 2017.

The Supplier of the Year award winners were chosen by a global team of GM purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing and logistics executives. Winners were selected based on performance criteria in Product Purchasing, Global Purchasing and Manufacturing Services, Customer Care and Aftersales, and Logistics.

“Hankook is honored to receive a GM Supplier of the Year award again this year,” said Hyunjun Cho, head of Hankook Tire OE Division. “We value our partnership with GM and believe this award three years in a row is a testament to our strong partnership and continued growth together.”
