GM recognizes safety systems provider Takata
Mar '11
As the global automotive industry continues its resurgence, General Motors took time to celebrate its tremendous momentum with the annual GM Supplier of the Year ceremony. The event took place at the GM World Headquarters located at the Renaissance Center in Detroit, Michigan, and was hosted by GM Chairman and CEO, Dan Akerson.

This year brought about an unprecedented accomplishment for Takata Corporation, as it was the first time in the award's rich history that one individual supplier received the award for all three safety-related products: Airbags, Steering Wheels and Seat Belts. Takata Corporation President and COO, Shigehisa Takada, was in attendance from Tokyo to personally receive the award and recognize the special relationship between Takata and GM.

"Since our founding more than 75 years ago, Takata has dedicated our entire focus to the safety of human life leading to providing drivers and passengers of motor vehicles the most technically advanced protection from injury available -- and ultimately to saving lives," said Shigehisa Takata.

"Being recognized by a global automotive titan like General Motors as Supplier of the Year in all three safety related areas is a true honor, and an acknowledgment of the commitment we have to working as one with our customers to help make the safest vehicles available in the world."

Takata Corporation is one of the world's leading suppliers of advanced automotive safety systems and products. Its customers include nearly every automotive manufacturer and several Tier One suppliers. Its technology features a strong emphasis on safety restraint systems, seat belts, air bags, safety electronics, interior trim, and special fabrics and textile materials.
