Despite Public Relations Crisis, Toyota Recognizes Top Minority Suppliers (4204 hits)

DENSO, Johnson Controls, Inc. and MAHLE, earned top recognition from Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America, Inc. (TEMA) at its Annual Supplier Business Meeting (ABM) today. The awards recognize suppliers who exceeded the company's expectations in several areas.

"As Toyota redoubles its efforts to improve quality, our suppliers' commitment to flexibility and continuous improvement is crucial to Toyota now more than ever," said Tetsuo Agata, TEMA president. "Our supplier partners are working with us to assure the best possible product for our customers."

Now in its 14th year, ABM allows TEMA to discuss business objectives with direct suppliers in preparation for the upcoming fiscal year. Held at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center in Covington, ABM brings together approximately 800 attendees from across North America. In the U.S. alone, there are about 63,000 supplier jobs across 38 states dedicated to Toyota. Moreover, Toyota collectively spent nearly $25 billion on parts, goods and services last year in North America.

Supplier Diversity awards went to:

* Diversity–Special Vuteq, LLC. in New Albany, MS for supplying interior plastics.

* Exide Technologies in Milton, GA for supplying batteries.

* Johnson Controls in Milwaukee, WI for supplying seats.

* Shape Corp in Grand Haven, MI for supplying impact beams and energy management absorbers

* Walbridge in Detroit, MI for supplying construction services
