Lear Corp., a global supplier of automotive seating and electrical systems, was named a GM Supplier of the Year for Complete Seat by General Motors (GM) during the automaker’s 26th annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony held Friday, April 20, in Orlando, Florida.
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 recognized since debuting the Supplier of the Year event in 1992. This is the 17th time Lear has received the award.
“On behalf of the global Lear team, we are truly honored to be recognized with this prestigious award from General Motors,” said Ray Scott, Lear president and CEO. “Putting our customers first is one of our core values, and reflects the way we approach our work every day. I want to congratulate the entire Lear team for their outstanding customer support and especially those that work directly with General Motors.”
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 GM in the areas of vehicle components, supply chain and logistics, customer care and aftersales and indirect services.
