Seattle – April 19, 2012 – GM Nameplate has been recognized as Supplier of the Year in the Interiors category by The Boeing Company. GM Nameplate was one of 16 companies honored on April 18th for distinguished performance in working with Boeing.

“In today’s challenging business environment, an agile supply chain that continuously delivers excellent performance is critical,” said Jack House, vice president of Supplier Management for Boeing Defense, Space and Security and leader of Boeing’s company-wide Supplier Management program. “The supplier partners receiving 2011 Supplier of the Year awards have demonstrated outstanding commitment to providing our customers with the best-value, highest-quality products and services, while meeting the customers’ requirements and anticipating their needs for the future.”

This year’s winners represent an elite group among more than 17,525 active Boeing suppliers in nearly 52 countries around the world. This selection was based on stringent performance criteria for quality, delivery performance, cost, environmental initiatives, customer service and technical expertise.

“To receive Boeing’s Supplier of the Year for the 3rd year in a row is not only an incredible pioneering achievement, but a true testament to the spirit of collaboration we have with The Boeing Company. Our whole organization is focused on this goal as well as fulfilling every commitment no matter the size.
