The steelmaker received that designation--and another honor, the Overdrive Award--during General Motors’ 22nd annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony on March 12 at the Cobo Center in Detroit.

GM’s exclusive Supplier of the Year honor was presented to only 68 suppliers which have consistently exceeded GM’s expectations by being innovative, delivering quality products and services on time and by creating outstanding value, ArcelorMittal said in a statement released on Wednesday.

“Our suppliers play an important role in helping GM deliver compelling vehicles to our customers,” said Grace Lieblein, GM vice-president, global purchasing and supply chain. “ArcelorMittal has an outstanding track record for consistently meeting our business needs, while also supporting our cultural priorities.”

In addition to being named a 2013 Supplier of the Year, ArcelorMittal earned GM’s prestigious Overdrive Award, an honor given to just four companies worldwide. This award recognizes suppliers that have undertaken extraordinary initiatives that drove outstanding results for GM’s business, while demonstrating values important to GM and exceptional commitment to their community.

“The recognition from General Motors is testament to the commitment from ArcelorMittal employees through the world, working to produce safe, sustainable steel and exceed our customers’ expectations each and every day,” said Gordon O’Neill, ArcelorMittal’s global account manager for GM. “It is quite the privilege to be selected in such a competitive process, considering the scope of global suppliers that go beyond steel to include companies that supply services, parts, components, sub-systems and other critical products that create today’s modern vehicle.”

ArcelorMittal is the world's leading steel and mining company, with a presence in more than 60 countries and an industrial footprint in over 20 countries.
