For the eighth time in 10 years, BASF has received General Motors’ Supplier of the Year Award.

Hans Engel, chairman and chief executive of BASF Corporation, accepted the award on behalf of the company’s coatings division during General Motors’ annual awards ceremony on March 13 at the Detroit Institute of Arts.

“As a company focused on harnessing the power of chemistry to make our customers more successful, we are honored to have once again earned this recognition from General Motors,” said Engel. “Working together with forward-looking, visionary customers like GM, BASF will continue to create the chemistry for a sustainable future.”

BASF’s coatings division supports GM by combining modern paint processes with special effect pigments and technologies. BASF offers a broad array of color solutions and development capabilities that help carmakers improve productivity and environmental performance.  

For example, BASF recently introduced the environmentally friendly CathoGuard 800 and 900 product line, a cathodic e-coating system that provides the base for automotive surfaces and protects edges and cavities from corrosion said the company.

“The Supplier of the Year award winners' partnership, dedication and commitment to consistently perform above expectations played an important role in GM’s success in 2011,” said Bob Socia, vice president, global purchasing and supply chain. “In 2012, we will continue to improve supplier relations to achieve a world class supply chain focused on quality, capacity management and total cost.”

GM’s Supplier of the Year program began in 1992, and each year a global team of purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing and logistics executives determine the winners of the Supplier of the Year Award. Winners represent "World Class" performance leaders in the areas of quality, technology, price and service.
