Federal-Mogul Corporation received the 2009 Supplier of the Year Award from General Motors, in recognition of its performance in engine piston products.
Federal-Mogul supplies aluminum pistons, rings and connecting rods to General Motors for both passenger cars and light trucks. This is the third consecutive year Federal-Mogul has received the GM award.
Federal-Mogul president and chief executive officer Jos Maria Alapont accepted the award from Bob Socia, GM group vice-president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain, during a presentation at the GM Design Dome in Warren, Mich.
“We’re very honoured to receive this award, as it demonstrates our continued focus on meeting and exceeding high performance standards for General Motors,” Alapont said. “We remain committed to providing world-class, innovative products and services for GM and value our strategic development and supply partnership with the company.”
The award recognizes the significant contributions of GM’s suppliers in 2009 as part of the company’s global product and performance achievements. The Supplier of the Year program started in 1992, and each year a global team of purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing and logistics executives determines the winners.
“We look forward to continue developing a long-term relationship based on strategic businesses that benefit both companies,” said Socia.
