“An invitation by General Motors to the Cobo Center in Detroit is always a special occasion for GROB-WERKE,” stated chief representative Christian Grob, “since every year General Motors recognizes its best suppliers there. Thus, we had the great honor for the third year in a row, and for the ninth time ever of accepting the ‘Supplier of the Year Award’ as the best supplier of the year”.
This recognition directly follows the double award in Shanghai and Changchun, China, as well as the award of the Intec Prize for the innovative G-Net application concept at the Leipzig intec trade fair. “These accolades have great value for our Company”, Grob declared. “They come from our most important partners – our customers”. These are prizes that repeatedly underscore the technological leadership of GROB-WERKE. “The awards to our company are not only clear evidence of satisfied customers, they also demonstrate that we are on the right track with our technological developments”, Grob emphasized. Further, these honors are for more than excellent products and technologies, they also stand for the quality of GROB services. “Another reason why these customers’ awards have a particularly high value for our Company”.
The 23rd annual GM awards ceremony was presided over by Mary Barra, General Motors CEO who, in conjunction with a jury made up of GM managers in the areas of purchasing, development, quality control and logistics, presented the awards to the winners. This globally-based jury also earlier carried out the evaluations of the participating suppliers.
