FCA US LLC honored Linamar Corporation with the Powertrain Supplier of the Year Award at the Company's annual Supplier Conference held at MotorCity Casino Hotel in Detroit on May 3rd. The Supplier of the Year awards recognize companies that have shown an extraordinary commitment to innovation, quality, warranty, cost, delivery and the FCA Foundational Principles.
"We honor those who continue to fuel our momentum by providing us not only the best ideas and cutting-edge technologies, but also the suppliers who consistently exceed our expectations," said Scott Thiele, Chief Purchasing Officer, FCA – Global. "We know that you are the backbone of this industry and the partnerships we have formed over the years have brought forth some of the most exciting vehicles in the market, from the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, the industry's first electrified minivan, to the world's most powerful factory-production V-8 in the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon."
Award recipients were determined based on an evaluation of each company’s supplier scorecard performance in 2016 – a rating system that evaluates supplier performance in areas such as quality, delivery, cost, warranty and partnership – and input from FCA senior leadership.
