ArcelorMittal proudly accepted General Motors’ Supplier of the Year award for the second consecutive year at the automaker’s 23th annual ceremony held in Detroit on Thursday, March 5. The Supplier of the Year award was given to just 78, or less than one percent, of GM’s global suppliers.

According to GM, winning suppliers from around the world receive the award for going above and beyond GM’s requirements, designed to provide customers with the most innovative technologies and the industry’s best quality vehicles.

“ArcelorMittal is beyond proud to be recognised as a Supplier of the Year for the second consecutive year by one of our most important customers, General Motors. This award is a testament to the commitment of all of our employees, those working in our R&D labs to continue to innovate and push steel beyond its limits, those on the shop-floor producing high-quality steel products, and those who provide superior customer service to the automaker,” said Brad Davey, chief marketing officer, ArcelorMittal North America Flat Rolled.

Supplier of the Year award winners are chosen by a global team of GM purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing and logistics executives.

“These companies are the best-of-the-best suppliers, and deserving of special recognition for their outstanding contributions,” said Steve Kiefer, GM vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “We need them to continue to bring us their most innovative technologies and highest quality services and work, and we will continue to win together for the benefit of our customers.”
