Nemak was selected as a Turn Around Automotive Operations and Compete like a Challenger winner as well as a recipient of the Gold Quality Award at Ford Motor Company’s virtual event, which was held earlier this week.
“We are very honored to receive these awards. Being recognized as one of the best suppliers for Ford in supporting its strategic plan, even amidst quite challenging conditions, truly reflects Nemak’s commitment towards going above and beyond to exceed customers’ expectations,” said Armando Tamez, Nemak’s CEO.
