Tenneco, a global supplier of Ride Performance, Clean Air and Aftermarket products and systems, was named a GM Supplier of the Year by General Motors during its 26th annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony, held in late April in Orlando, Fla.

GM recognized 132 of its best suppliers from 17 countries who have consistently exceeded GM's expectations, created outstanding value, or brought innovations to the company. The announcement represented the most suppliers GM has recognized since debuting the Supplier of the Year event in 1992. Tenneco earned two Supplier of the Year awards at the ceremony — one each for its Clean Air and Global Elastomer teams. The award was the second in three years for the elastomers team, which was also recognized as a GM Supplier of the Year in 2016.

"This is an opportunity for General Motors to honor those suppliers who are truly the best of the best," said Steve Kiefer, GM senior vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. "The automotive industry is transforming at an incredible rate. The relationships we have with our supply base means everything when it comes to delivering a strong vehicle lineup today and the cutting-edge vehicles and mobility services of tomorrow."

More than 45 percent of this year's Supplier of the Year awardees are repeat winners from 2016.

GM's Supplier of the Year award is reserved for suppliers who distinguish themselves by meeting performance metrics for quality, execution, innovation and total enterprise cost. Award winners represent companies who provide products and services to General Motors in areas of vehicle components, supply chain and logistics, customer care and aftersales and indirect services.

"We're extremely honored to receive this important recognition from General Motors for our Clean Air and Elastomers team," said Brian Kessler, chief executive officer, Tenneco. "This award demonstrates Tenneco's commitment to partnering with our customers to deliver world-class products and solutions."
