Belleville, MI – (March 29, 2023) – General Motors recognized Ascent, a leading global logistics company, as a 2022 Supplier of the Year. GM celebrated honorees at its 31st annual Supplier of the Year event in San Antonio, Texas, earlier this week.
GM’s Supplier of the Year award recognizes global suppliers that distinguish themselves by exceeding GM’s requirements, in turn providing customers with innovative technologies and among the highest quality in the automotive industry. This is the ninth time Ascent has received the award.
“We are honored to once again receive this recognition from our long-term customer, GM. To be recognized in this environment is even more meaningful given the global supply chain disruptions and truly underscores the capabilities of the Ascent team,” said Chris Jamroz, Executive Chairman of the Board at Ascent.
“It’s always an honor to have our work recognized by a customer, but considering the dynamic market in 2022, it is even more rewarding to know that our team’s unyielding commitment to customer-centric service has allowed us to rise above that fray and deliver excellence for GM,” said Tom Breen, Vice President, Strategic Sales for Ascent. “This is a terrific achievement, and we look forward to continuing to exceed expectations for GM for many years to come,” added Tony Facciolla, Advisor to Ascent’s Executive Chairman.
“We are thrilled to recognize these outstanding suppliers after yet another challenging year in the automotive industry,” said Jeff Morrison, GM vice president of Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “They overcame countless obstacles and exemplified what it means to be resilient, resourceful and determined. Beyond that, these suppliers demonstrated their commitment to sustainable innovation and to driving advanced solutions in collaboration with the GM team.”
