Smalley was recently presented with the GM Supplier Quality Excellence Award for 2016. This marks the 5th year in a row that Smalley has received this prestigious honor. Smalley is just one of 16 suppliers to receive the award annually since its inception in 2012.

This accolade is awarded only after the supplier passes a rigorous quality audit that covers every aspect of production, from customer satisfaction to delivery.

“What an honor to be recognized once again for our commitment to quality, engineering excellence and customer service by General Motors,” states Jamie Madison, Smalley’s Director of Quality Engineering. “Recently we were notified that we will be again receiving this award for 2017.
