Detroit, March 20, 2022 – General Motors recognized Ideal Contracting as a 2021 Supplier of the Year. GM celebrated honorees at its 30th annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony in Phoenix, Arizona, earlier this week.
GM’s Supplier of the Year award recognizes global suppliers that distinguish themselves by exceeding GM’s requirements, in turn providing GM customers with innovative technologies and among the highest quality in the automotive industry. This year, GM recognized 134 suppliers from 16 countries with the Supplier of the Year distinction.
This is the 12th time Ideal Contracting has received the award.
“Over the past 20 years, General Motors has named an Ideal Group company a GM Supplier of the Year award winner seventeen times. This year, Ideal Contracting brought home the coveted award. Significantly, few companies have earned this award as many times as Ideal.
We are very proud of the Ideal Contracting Supplier of the Year award. The award is a tribute to the company’s people and teams, the best, most respected, and safe group of professionals delivering exceptional construction projects and services,” said Frank Venegas Jr., Chairman & CEO.
“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 winners based on performance criteria in Product Purchasing, Global Purchasing and Manufacturing Services, Customer Care and Aftersales, and Logistics.
