Continental Structural Plastics (CSP), along with its parent company Teijin Limited, was honoured by General Motors with the automakers Innovation Award at its 27th Annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony held in Warren, Michigan. CarbonPro, the industry’s first pickup box made with carbon fibre, has earned CSP the GM Innovation Award.

CSP was among just four suppliers to receive the coveted Innovation Award, which was chosen by a global team of GM purchasing, engineering, quality, manufacturing and logistics executives. Winners were selected based on performance criteria in product purchasing, global purchasing and manufacturing services, customer care, aftersales, and logistics.

“We hold our suppliers to a high bar,” said Steve Kiefer, GM senior vice president, global purchasing and supply chain. “They went above and beyond to deliver the innovations and quality that will help us earn customers for life.”

“It is exciting to be a part of an industry first, and an honour to be recognised by our customer for our innovation,” said Steve Rooney, CEO of CSP. “The CarbonPro box represents the culmination of great people and great companies coming together to create an innovative solution to a design challenge. I could not be more proud of the R&D, engineering and sales teams who have worked tirelessly to build a very strong partnership with General Motors.”

Continental Structural Plastics, a Teijin Group company, has provided leading-edge technologies in lightweight materials and composite solutions for the automotive, heavy truck, HVAC and construction industries for 50 years. (PC)
