For the second year running HELLER Machine Tools has been awarded the General Motors (GM) 2017 Supplier of the Year award within the category of Indirect Material and Machinery.

The award was presented for the HELLER RFK and DRZ ranges of crank shaft machinery, engineering and applications, which are being used by GM in many global manufacturing plants.

Since the machine installations, GM has seen reductions in crank shaft production costs along with consistency of accuracy and reliability, all of which contributed to the receiving of this award.

Wolfgang Maerker, Vice President of the HELLER Crank Shaft Division, commented, "GM has been very supportive of our company and we are honored yet again to win this award."

The award conference and presentation events were held at the Disney Yacht and Beach Club Resort, Orlando, FL, which was attended by over 600 GM and supplier company executives and their guests.

The event was hosted by Steve Kiefer, GM Senior Vice President Global Purchasing and Supply Chain, who explained how GM is working with suppliers to form strategic partnerships with higher quality intercompany relationships at all levels.

General Motors has over 20,000 suppliers globally and this year only 132 of these suppliers were presented with awards within 11 different categories. The requirements for the awards focus on quality, innovation, delivery, performance, safety, commercials and customer support.

Stephen Pegram, Vice President of Sales for HELLER, said, "GM is using the very latest technology to produce several ranges of crank shafts. Our teams have formed a great partnership and ensured our projects have been successful and to the original timelines. Our thanks to GM for the recognition and award."
