General Motors Names Ideal Contracting a 2022 Supplier of the Year


DETROIT, MI – General Motors recognized Ideal Contracting as a 2022 Supplier of the Year. GM celebrated honorees at its 31st annual Supplier of the Year event in San Antonio, Texas, in late March.

Congratulations to our team of outstanding construction professionals for exceeding expectations and delivering exceptional construction projects and services to our customer.”

Beyond that, these suppliers demonstrated their commitment to sustainable innovation and to driving advanced solutions in collaboration with the GM team.”
