GM awards 94 of its top global suppliers for excellence

General Motors has recognised its top global suppliers of 2023 during its annual Supplier of the Year recognition event. In total, 86 suppliers were recognized with a Supplier of the Year award, and an additional eight Overdrive Awards were handed to suppliers who far exceeded expectations.

“We’re honoured to partner with these top suppliers who have made notable contributions to our transformation. Together, we’re pushing boundaries, pioneering new technologies and redefining what’s possible,” said Jeff Morrison, vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “Their innovation and support are critical to helping us deliver the world-class vehicles our customers have to come expect.”

Rigorous selection process
A global, cross-functional GM team rigorously selects Supplier of the Year and Overdrive award winners based on performance, innovation, cultural alignment with GM’s values, and commitment to achieving GM’s ambitious goals.

The GPSC Priority Wheel guides the selection process, prioritizing the customer in every aspect of supply chain decision-making. This framework prioritizes three core values: Safety, Inclusion and Relationships. These foundational values underpin all other priorities, including Sustainability, Innovation, Execution, Resilience and Profitability.

By emphasizing these values, GPSC fosters a robust, diverse, collaborative partnership ecosystem that drives mutual success for GM and its suppliers.

The Overdrive Award recognizes exceptional suppliers who consistently exceed expectations in their partnership with GM. These companies go the extra mile, exceeding expectations.

For instance, one winner’s innovative solution slashed GM’s diesel fuel consumption by a staggering 2,900 gallons, eliminating over 17 tons of carbon emissions. Another winner set a high bar for safety, managing to open a massive 600,000-square-foot facility in just five days to expedite parts delivery for GM’s customers.
