We are one of the 22 suppliers that Honda recently honored that provided indirect products and services to its manufacturing plants in North America, including Honda’s corporate functions across the region. The awards were presented at the annual Honda Indirect Procurement Supplier Conference held at the Bridgewater Banquet and Conference Center in Powell, Ohio.
Award-winning suppliers were selected for achievements in the categories of Special Recognition, Outstanding Value and Performance Excellence, as well as the Supplier of the Year during a ceremony. These outstanding honorees were selected from the more than 2,200 suppliers that provide equipment, products and services to Honda manufacturing plants and corporate functions across North America.
“We’re incredibly proud to have our efforts recognized by Honda,” said Gladis Orsi, vice president of business development at Stefanini. “Putting the client first is in our DNA, and this recognition is the result of our hard work.”
The indirect suppliers providing parts and services to Honda are local, national and even international in scope, with many having grown up along with the expansion of Honda’s production operations in America. Honda will mark 40 years of U.S. production in Sept. 2019.
“Our suppliers and business partners make us a stronger company, helping us realize innovation and advancement, by delivering the benefits the marketplace has to offer,” said Monica Oliverio, department manager of the North American Indirect Procurement Department at Honda of America Mfg., Inc. “This complimentary and valued relationship is an important part of our mutual success.”
Indirect purchasing for business and manufacturing operations in North America totaled nearly $2.3 billion for calendar year 2018.
