General Motors has named SKF a 2020 GM Supplier of the Year.

The annual awards highlight GM’s top 2020 calendar-year suppliers from 16 countries that have exceeded GM’s requirements and provide GM customers with innovative technologies that are among the highest quality in the automotive industry.

“We’re grateful to be recognized again by GM as a Supplier of the Year and for the continued partnership with them as a customer,” said Greg Zimmerman, president, SKF Automotive North America. “For over 70 years, our world-class bearing and seal technologies have been a critical component for many GM vehicle programs, and more recently, we are proud to also be supplying GM with bearings and seals for the next generation of all-electric vehicles. In addition, SKF stepped up to the GM challenge to supply bearings used in building ventilators as part of the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“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.

The Supplier of the Year award winners were chosen by a global team of GM purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing and logistics executives. Winners were selected based on performance criteria in Product Purchasing, Global Purchasing and Manufacturing Services, Customer Care and Aftersales, and Logistics.
