Melbourne manufacturer, Mett, has received the highly coveted 2008 Supplier of the Year Award from General Motors Corporation at the 17th annual awards presentation at the GM Heritage Centre in Warren, Michigan, US.
The Award is based on performance in the areas of quality, service, technology and price.
Erwin Schulter, Executive Manager of Mett, accepted the award on behalf of the business, which is a global supplier of die cast aluminium and zinc castings supplied as full sub assemblies, machined or cast condition.
Bo Andersson, GM group vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain, said “GM is proud to honour our best suppliers with the Supplier of the Year award, an award that we believe is the most meaningful honour in the supplier industry.
“During these difficult economic times, it’s more important than ever to recognize performance in our best suppliers.”
The GM Supplier of the Year award began as a global program in 1992. Winners are selected by a global team of executives from purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing, and logistics, who base their decisions on supplier performance in the areas of quality, service, technology, and price.
This year, General Motors honoured 99 suppliers for their outstanding performance throughout 2008.
