General Motors recognized KATCON as a 2022 Supplier of the Year. GM celebrated honorees at its 31st annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony in San Antonio, Texas.
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 5th time KATCON has received the award and the 3rd in the last 7 years.
"As we celebrate 30 years of Katcon's start of operations, we dedicate this prestigious award, given to less than 0.5% of all suppliers, to all of our employees, their families, and our suppliers around the world, they all deserve the credit for this achievement," said Carlos Turner, Katcon CEO. "Katcon renews its commitment to GM's long-term strategy and momentum; our product offering for ICE platforms (exhaust, aftertreatment, and thermal management solutions), as well as EV applications (lightweight materials, battery enclosures, and battery module components) continues to be aligned with GM's evolution and goals."
"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 as Product Purchasing, Global Purchasing and Manufacturing Services, Customer Care and Aftersales and Logistics.
