Faurecia Emissions Control Technologies receives General Motors’ 2015 “Supplier of the Year” Award
“We are grateful to General Motors for recognizing the inventive minds, hard work and lean processes that distinguish our worldwide Faurecia Emissions Control Technologies workforce,” said FECT North American Operations President Dave DeGraaf. “We are proud to be a supplier for General Motors, and I know everyone within FECT greatly appreciates this recognition and our highly valued relationship with GM.”
FECT earned the highest-level ranking for supplier performance based on a series of metrics applied by GM. The rankings evaluate business performance and cultural priorities. FECT scored greater than 4 out of 5 on both scales. Business performance incorporates quality, launch, material cost and supply chain. A GM internal survey of departments, which work closely together with suppliers, evaluates cultural priorities and focuses on total enterprise cost, transparency, communication/responsiveness and innovation/engineering.
“We are focused on building positive supplier relationships, bringing new, customer-centric innovations to GM, and being the OEM of choice among suppliers,” said Steve Kiefer, GM vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “The companies we recognize tonight not only have brought innovation, they delivered it with the quality our customers deserve.”
GM’s senior leadership, including CEO Mary Barra, recognized 110 of GM’s best suppliers from 17 countries at the 24th annual “Supplier of the Year” awards ceremony in Detroit, Michigan.
General Motors was Faurecia’s 5th largest customer worldwide in 2015, generating product sales of $1.35 billion.
