GM Supplier of the Year Awards (April 2017)

Hamann International Logistics from Wetteren, Belgium was named a GM Supplier of the Year by General Motors during its 25th annual Supplier of the Year Awards ceremony held Friday 31st March in Orlando, Florida.


GM counts 20.000 suppliers and recognized 118 of their best suppliers in different fields from 15 countries as Supplier of the Year.

The Awards were given to companies that have consistently exceeded GM’s expectations, that created outstanding value or brought new innovations to the company. According to Steve Kiefer, GM Vice President Global Purchasing and Supply Chain, the companies that were recognized not only have brought innovation, but they delivered it with the quality that GM-customers deserve and require.

Hamann was elected in the category “Logistics” together with nine other winning companies coming from the United States, Far East and Europe.
Managing director Wim Libaers and Project & Accountmanager Johan Galle received the trophy from Todd J. Scott, Executive Director Global Supply Chain and from James Bovenzi, Executive Director Demand Supply.

For Hamann this Award is a reward for over 25 years of cooperation with the GM plants in Europe, for Opel as well as for Vauxhall and Chevrolet. Hamann has been appointed as the exclusive logistics partner for Belgium and the Netherlands for the collection and delivery of all production parts into the plants in Germany and Austria as well as Opel Antwerp, till that plant closed down in 2010. Overmore Hamann delivers all spare parts from the central warehouses in Germany towards the regional distribution centres in Belgium, Holland, France, United Kingdom and Scandinavia. All collections and deliveries are made after close consultation with the customer, with whom we developed personalized systems for order entry order status follow up, just-in-time collection and delivery, documentation and invoicing. All existing contracts were recently extended until 2020. Our total turnover with GM is around 9 million euro, which makes them one of our largest customers. 

 The recent acquisition of Opel and Vauxhall by PSA will stop the future cooperation with General Motors. However the contacts with the European plants and the decision makers are excellent and Hamann is therefore convinced that they can look forward full of confidence to a succesful relationship with the new strong group.
