Axalta takes GM title

Axalta Coating Systems has been named a GM Supplier of the Year by General Motors.

GM recognised 118 of its best suppliers from 15 countries during its 25th annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony in Orlando, Florida, USA. It represented the most suppliers GM has recognised since debuting the Supplier of the Year event in 1992. This is the third consecutive year Axalta has received the award.

‘We are focused on building positive supplier relationships, bringing new, customer-centric innovations to GM and being the OEM of choice among suppliers,’ said Steve Kiefer, GM vice president, global purchasing and supply chain. ‘The companies we recognise tonight not only have brought innovation, they delivered it with the quality our customers deserve.’

‘For the third consecutive year, Axalta’s global team is honoured to accept this prestigious recognition from GM,’ said Steve Markevich, Axalta executive vice president and president of transportation coatings and Greater China. ‘Axalta looks forward to building upon our long-standing relationship with GM and continuing to deliver exciting colours, long lasting durability, and world class innovation that GM and our customers around the world deserve.’
