General Motors (GM) recognized Barton Malow as a 2021 Supplier of the Year. Last week, GM celebrated honorees at its 30th annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony in Phoenix, Arizona, where Barton Malow Company President Jon Woodsum and Senior Vice President of Automotive Jeff Baxa formally accepted it on behalf of Barton Malow.
This is the fifth time Barton Malow has received the award in its 30-year history, most recently in 2019 and 2020.
GM’s Supplier of the Year award recognizes global suppliers that distinguish themselves by exceeding GM’s requirements, in turn providing GM customers with innovative technologies and among the highest quality in the automotive industry. This year, GM recognized 134 suppliers from 16 countries with the Supplier of the Year distinction.
“Receiving this commendation for the fifth time speaks to our lasting relationship with GM and the quality of our partnership,” Jeff Baxa, Barton Malow Company Senior Vice President of Automotive, said. “We remain highly committed to advancing the automotive market with partners like GM by continuing to deliver value, innovation, and quality in a transparent and collaborative manner.”
“This year’s Supplier of the Year event was special not only because it’s the 30th anniversary of the program, but because it provided us with the opportunity to recognize our suppliers for persevering through one of the most challenging years the industry has ever faced,” Shilpan Amin, GM Vice President, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain, said. “These top suppliers showed resilience and reinforced their commitment to pursuing sustainability and innovation. Through our strong relationships and collaboration, GM and our suppliers are poised to build a brighter future for generations to come.”
A global, cross-functional team selected the 2021 Supplier of the Year winners based on performance criteria in Product Purchasing, Global Purchasing and Manufacturing Services, Customer Care and Aftersales, and Logistics.
