Tenaris has been recognized by the American Axle & Manufacturing as a best supplier in the “launch” category, for the supply of axle tubes under a tight timeline to their new production facility in Mexico.
American Axle & Manufacturing is a company that designs, engineers, manufactures, and supplies driveline and metal forming products for vehicles. The company recognized its key suppliers during its 28th Supplier Day ceremony in Detroit, Michigan, with a Supplier of the Year and Supplier Excellence awards.
A team of AAM associates from its global procurement, product engineering, supplier quality, manufacturing and supply chain management evaluated and selected this year's awards based on the company’s scorecard rating of its suppliers' delivery performance, product quality, launch execution and technology leadership.
“This award recognizes Tenaris’s ability to react to a very challenging deadline while delivering high-quality products to comply with AAM’s plan to produce axles in their facility in Mexico for General Motors’ full size trucks,” said Rocio Rios, senior sales manager in the automotive sector. “It was very rewarding to see the efforts of all the people that participated in this project being recognized in an event like this. This project has proven Tenaris is a strategic partner for AAM.”
Since its opening, around sixty years ago, Tenaris’s Tamsa facility has been committed to providing high-quality products and excellent customer service to meet the high standards that the automotive market demands.
The automotive sector accounts for 17.6 percent of Mexico’s manufacturing sector, making it the second largest automobile manufacturing nation in the western hemisphere, after the US. In addition to its principal products for the auto sector, Tamsa operates a research and development center to advance its product development and offer customers increasingly efficient and innovative products.
