Bo I. Anderson, former GM group vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain, explained the reasoning behind the selection of DuPont Automotive OEM Coatings, citing DuPont’s “consistent ability to exceed GM's expectations in the areas of quality, service, technology, and price demonstrates your commitment to our mutual success.” DuPont, on a worldwide basis, supplies GM with a variety of products, including undercoats, color coats and clear coats.

B.C. Chong, vice president and general manager for DuPont Automotive OEM Coatings, described the honor as “particularly special to DuPont” because of its long and successful partnership with GM. “We look forward to providing GM with DuPont technology and products that will enable them to meet future regulatory requirements while ensuring consumer satisfaction."
