Aisin World Corp. of America (AWA) has received the General Motors 2007 Supplier of the Year award for its significant contributions to GM’s global product and performance achievements. The 16th annual award — themed the "Best of the Best" — was presented during ceremonies recently at the Sawgrass Marriott Hotel in Jacksonville, FL.

"We are proud to honor AWA as one of our Supplier of the Year winners in 2007," said Bo Andersson, GM group vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. "AWA received this honor for its outstanding performance and making a significant contribution to the manufacturing of our world-class vehicles."

AWA President Don Whitsitt said Aisin views General Motors as a true partner, and is proud to play a role in the production of some of the greatest vehicles in the world.

"The renaissance of General Motors is evident in its business practices," said Whitsitt, "but more so in its product. Product is the ultimate test of a company’s success, and GM is succeeding in providing product with world-class quality and value. We are proud to be a partner in that goal, and of being named a GM Supplier of the Year."

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, manufacturing and logistics who base their decisions on supplier performance in quality, service, technology and price. This year, General Motors honored 92 suppliers for their outstanding performance throughout 2007.

Aisin supplies sunroof systems for an array of GM products. Aisin sunroofs are produced at Aisin Manufacturing Illinois, Marion, IL. The facility also manufactures power slide door systems, outside handles, door garnishes and other body components.
