L&L Products was named a GM Supplier of the Year by General Motors during the company's 29th annual Supplier of the Year awards.
Recipients of the Supplier of the Year award include 122 suppliers representing 16 countries, with more than a dozen first-time winners. A total of 170 awards were presented for outstanding performance and commitment to excellence.
“As GM works to achieve a future with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion, we are proud to have innovative and dedicated suppliers around the world as partners in this mission,” said Shilpan Amin, GM vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain.
“Throughout a challenging year, our suppliers have showed resilience and dedication in working toward our shared goal of long-term sustainability for our planet and the communities we serve while meeting our present needs,” Amin said. “We are pleased with what we’ve accomplished together in the past year, and we are excited by the opportunity that lies ahead.”
The 2020 Supplier of the Year and Overdrive Award winners were selected by a global team of GM purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing, and logistics leaders. Winners were chosen based on performance criteria in Product Purchasing, Global Purchasing and Manufacturing Services, Customer Care and Aftersales, and Logistics.
"We are so humbled to receive the GM Supplier of the Year for 2020. Considering that our Founders started the company with an order from Fisher Body in 1958, and to lead to this partnership that has lasted this long is truly unusual today. We are so very grateful," said Tom Kleino, President of L&L Products Americas.
In addition to the 2020 GM Supplier of the year award, L&L Products has celebrated the GM Customer Care and Aftersales 2020 On-Time Shipping Recognition Award, and the Supplier Quality Excellence Award, which respectively received the honor for the first and ninth consecutive time.
