General Motors recognized Siemens Digital Industries Software as a 2022 Supplier of the Year. GM celebrated honorees at its 31st annual Supplier of the Year event in San Antonio, Texas, earlier this month.
GM’s Supplier of the Year award recognizes global suppliers that distinguish themselves by exceeding GM’s requirements, in turn providing customers with innovative technologies and among the highest quality in the automotive industry. This is the 6th time Siemens has received the award.
“We are delighted by this recognition of our contribution to GM’s leadership in the automotive field as they work toward their goals for sustainable innovation,” said Tony Hemmelgarn, president and CEO, Siemens Digital Industries Software. “This award demonstrates how the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio and our comprehensive digital twin technology continues to enable true pioneers and innovators to bring together the physical and digital worlds. This is never truer than in the automotive industry as it faces the challenges of electrification, autonomy and decarbonization.”
"We are thrilled to recognize these outstanding suppliers after yet another challenging year in the automotive industry," said Jeff Morrison, GM vice president of Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. "They overcame countless obstacles and exemplified what it means to be resilient, resourceful and determined. Beyond that, these suppliers demonstrated their commitment to sustainable innovation and to driving advanced solutions in collaboration with the GM team."
Each year, GM’s Supplier of the Year recipients are selected by a global, cross-functional GM team for their performance in criteria such Product Purchasing, Global Purchasing and Manufacturing Services, Customer Care and Aftersales and Logistics.
