General Motors Honors Kautex Windsor as Winner of Coveted Overdrive Award

Kautex was named a GM Overdrive Award winner during General Motors’ 25th annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony held Friday, March 31 in Orlando, Fla.  

GM’s Overdrive Award, introduced in 2012, recognizes supply partners for extraordinary leadership in cultural change and commitment initiatives that drove exceptional business results for GM.  Kautex was named one of three 2016 Overdrive Award winners.

During the event, GM recognized 118 of its best suppliers from 15 countries that have consistently exceeded GM’s expectations, created outstanding value or introduced innovations to the company.

GM recognized the most suppliers since debuting the Supplier of the Year event in 1992. More than half are repeat Supplier of the Year winners from 2015.

“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 recognize this year have brought innovation with the quality our customers deserve.”
