Goodyear receives Innovation award from General Motors
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company was named the GM Supplier of the Year by General Motors at the annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony in Orlando, Florida. General Motors has recognised 132 of its best suppliers from 17 countries.
“Goodyear has been working with General Motors dating almost as far back as our company’s inception. We are honored to receive this award and we are pleased to continue to supply GM with the quality and innovation necessary to meet consumer’s demands in the marketplace,” said Ken Hertl, Goodyear’s North American vice president of original equipment.
Goodyear has a long history of working with GM and has been supplying tyres for the auto manufacturer since the early 1900’s. Some of the most recent OE fitments that were awarded to Goodyear include the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE and luxury sport Cadillac CT6 and CT6 V-Sport vehicles. Additionally, Goodyear is No. 1 in OE on four of the five top-selling vehicles, and the No. 1 supplier of full-size trucks for the past 19 years, with premium fitments on the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra.
