The “Supplier Quality Excellence Award” is a global award. In order to be considered, the winners must meet a stringent set of quality performance criteria determined by GM, including product quality and certification of GM required quality management systems.
“Our aim is to serve society though superior quality, so to be recognised in this way by GM, is a great honour” said Christophe de Valroger, Vice President (OE consumer) Bridgestone Europe NV/SA, “this is a tribute to all of the team members in the plants who are fully committed to meeting the needs of our customers” he continued.
Burgos and Bethune received the award for the first time, while for Poznań it is the second time to be honoured.
