FANUC Receives GM Supplier of the Year Award for 2019
It is the 16th time—and the 15th consecutive year—FANUC has received General Motors’ supplier award.
FANUC was named a GM Supplier of the Year by General Motors (GM) during a virtual ceremony honoring the recipients of the company’s 28th annual Supplier of the Year awards, recognizing suppliers from the 2019 calendar year. This is the 16th time FANUC has received the award.
During the event, which was moved to a virtual venue due to COVID-19, GM recognized 116 of its best suppliers from 15 countries.
“On behalf of our entire team at FANUC, we are honored to once again receive this prestigious award from General Motors,” said Mike Cicco, president and CEO of FANUC America Corp. “This is the 16th time and 15th consecutive year that FANUC has won this award, an achievement that signifies our continued effort to provide automation solutions that help our customers solve their production challenges.”
“Our suppliers play a key role in delivering the products, services and experiences our customers deserve — and these award-winning suppliers went above and beyond our expectations,” said Shilpan Amin, GM’s vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “We also believe it’s important at this point in time to thank our entire supply base for their efforts the last few months to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19. Not only have we been able to safely restart our manufacturing operations, our suppliers played a key role in assisting our initiatives to increase the supply of ventilators and personal protection equipment (PPE) for frontline healthcare workers to help save lives and keep communities safe.”
