Johnson Controls’ Automotive Seating, Automotive Electronics & Interiors and Power Solutions units received a "Superior" award in supplier diversity for their seating, overhead console, injection molding, headliner, door trim and battery products. The supplier diversity award is given to suppliers that implement diversity activities and exceed Toyota’s targets.

The seats are manufactured at Johnson Controls’ plant in Milton, Ontario. According to TEMA, suppliers are awarded launch performance recognition for developing strategic launch plans and delivering successful production.
"We’re honored to be recognized by Toyota for our efforts and top performance in our product lines," said Beda Bolzenius, president of Johnson Controls Automotive Seating. "This further demonstrates our commitment to providing superior customer satisfaction, which is a key source of our success."
