The announcement represented the most suppliers GM has recognized since debuting the Supplier of the Year event in 1992. This is the third time in a row MacLean-Fogg Component Solutions has received the award.

"This is an opportunity for General Motors to honor those suppliers who are truly the best of the best," said Steve Kiefer, GM senior vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain.

The relationships we have with our supply base mean everything when it comes to delivering a strong vehicle lineup today and the cutting-edge vehicles and mobility services of tomorrow."
