General Motors Corp. recognized 97 companies today with its highly coveted Supplier of the Year Award at the 16 th annual awards presentation held at the Sawgrass Marriott Hotel.

There are 57 multiple-year winners among this year’s nominees.

This year’s ceremony will be highlighted with the presentation of the Corporation of the Year winner this evening during a special gala.

“GM is proud to honor our best suppliers with the Supplier of the Year Award, an award that we believe is the most meaningful honor in the industry,” said Bo Andersson, GM group vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “It is our way of telling them that we appreciate all their efforts in helping GM manufacture its world-class vehicles.

“These suppliers are the best of the best. They understand that our mutual success can only be achieved by sharing common goals and priorities.”

The award recognizes the significant contributions of GM’s suppliers in 2007 to the company’s global product and performance achievements. The Supplier of the Year program started in 1992, and each year a global team of purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing and logistics executives determine the winners. The team’s decisions are based on supplier performance in the areas of quality, service, technology and price.

MANN HUMMEL GmbH of Germany won its 16 th Supplier of the Year award making it the only company to receive an award every year since the trophies have been presented.

There were eight minority suppliers honored for their achievements. They included Advanced Assembly Products, Inc., The Bartech Group, Black River Manufacturing Inc., Detroit Technologies Inc., The Ideal Group, Inc., Motor City Express, NYX Inc. and Production Services Management Inc.

Other top GM executives were in attendance and addressed the suppliers. They were Rick Wagoner, GM chairman and chief executive officer; Fritz Henderson, GM president and chief operating officer; Gary Cowger, GM group vice president, Global Manufacturing and Labor Relations; and Dennis Mooney, GM vice president, Global Vehicle Systems and Integration.
