Detroit/Ludwigsburg, Germany, June 07 2019 – MANN+HUMMEL was named a Supplier of the Year by General Motors during their 27th annual ‘Supplier of the Year’ awards ceremony held in Detroit in May. It is the 24 time MANN+HUMMEL has received the award.

“We hold our suppliers to a high bar,” said Steve Kiefer, GM senior vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “They went above and beyond to deliver the innovations and quality that will help us earn customers for life.” 

Kurk Wilks, President and General Manager OEM at MANN+HUMMEL, accepted the award together with Bill Peers, Director Global Sales for GM. “General Motors is a very important longstanding customer for MANN+HUMMEL. We believe in their direction and remain deeply committed to aligning to their business priorities,” said Wilks. “To be recognized for our 24th Supplier of the Year is an honor and demonstrates the deep commitment each of us at MANN+HUMMEL have towards our longstanding partnership.”

More than half of the suppliers are repeat winners from 2017. The Supplier of the Year award winners were chosen by a global team of GM purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing and logistics executives. Winners were selected based on performance criteria in Product Purchasing, Global Purchasing and Manufacturing Services, Customer Care and Aftersales, and Logistics.

GM recognized 133 of its best suppliers from 15 countries that have consistently exceeded GM’s expectations, created outstanding value or introduced innovations to the company.
