AK Steel was among 116 suppliers recognized by GM for their performance in 2019. The award is reserved for suppliers who meet performance metrics for quality, execution, innovation and total enterprise cost. This was the third consecutive year that AK Steel was recognized.
“Our suppliers play a key role in delivering the products, services and experiences our customers deserve – and these award-winning suppliers went above and beyond our expectations,” said Shilpan Amin, GM vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “We also believe it’s important to thank our entire supply base for their efforts the last few months to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19.”
