Adient honors leading suppliers for commitment to excellence in 2016

On Nov. 16, Adient recognized 51 suppliers from around the world for their leadership and outstanding performance.

Our annual Supplier Performance Awards ceremony, held in Detroit, recognizes suppliers at four levels of accomplishment in the categories of quality, cost, logistics, development, technology and service.

"We congratulate all of our outstanding suppliers for their commitment to achieving operational excellence in everything they do. Through their dedication, focus and hard work, these partners continue to help us meet the rigorous demands of our global customers," said Kelly Bysouth, vice president, global procurement and supply chain.

Annual validation (PPAP)

Adient requires all direct material suppliers to provide documented evidence that they meet all requirements for their product and processes on an annual basis. This requirement can be met by providing Level 3 PPAP documentation (no physical samples). Suppliers are required to upload your latest valid certification for ISO 9001 or TS16949 and ISO 14001 at this link.
