Yanfeng, a leading global automotive supplier, virtually hosted its annual Supplier Awards during its Supplier Expectations Day event, recognizing 38 suppliers from North America (17 suppliers) and Europe (21 suppliers) with awards in various categories.



The most important rating criteria for the awards were quality, cost, logistics, development, diversity, technology, and service. Depending on their total rating, suppliers were recognized as Supplier of the Year, Distinguished Supplier, or awarded for their supplier excellence.

The operational challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic were a prevalent theme in the messages shared by Yanfeng leadership at this year’s ceremony. The event spotlighted the hard work and consistent efforts of the companies across Yanfeng’s supplier-base.

"It’s important for us to recognize our top suppliers and their teams for their dedication over the past year. For us, they are important partners, who play a decisive role in our success to deliver and exceed our customers’ expectations. There’s no denying the challenges our industry continues to face but taking this time to show our appreciation is more critical now than ever after the year we’ve gone through together," said James Bos, Vice President Global Procurement at Yanfeng.
