Johnson Controls awarded "Supplier of the Year" for the second time
Automotive supplier recognized at Automotive Interiors Expo 2015 in Stuttgart
Johnson Controls has been honored with the "Supplier of the Year" award at the Automotive Interiors Expo 2015 in Stuttgart, Germany. The leading automotive supplier was chosen as the winner in this category for the second time - the first in 2012 -- by an independent jury of 12 international automobile journalists. "It's a great honor for Johnson Controls to win the 'Supplier of the Year' award - especially with such a strong field of competitors," said Peter Heift, group vice president and general manager Trim at Johnson Controls Automotive Seating. "It is a great success for Johnson Controls to be the first company to receive this award for a second time. This recognition from the world's leading automobile journalists confirms our business strategy as well as our strong position in the market." The jury cited Johnson Controls' consistent focus on technology and innovation, as well as the expansion of its global reach, as reasons for the award. "Pioneering technology developments, cutting-edge designs and leading concept innovations, as well as realizing impressive growth, including the opening of new and state-of-the-art facilities around the world - it's been quite a year for Johnson Controls," said Dean Slavnich, chairman of the Automotive Interiors Expo Awards. "For these reasons, the company fully deserves to win our 'Supplier of the Year' award."
