The MPC/Pyrophobic collaboration was one of 16 companies to earn an Overdrive Award for 2022. The company celebrated honorees at an event in San Antonio, Texas in late March.

First presented in 2012, the Overdrive Award is a distinction reserved for suppliers who display outstanding achievement across the Global Purchasing and Supply Chain organization’s key priorities.

“Receiving the Overdrive award for innovation in our first year as a GM supplier is a great honor and testament to our collective team’s commitment and ability to make the impossible, possible. One thing we know is that we could not have achieved what we did without the dedication, resources and collaboration of GM and Pyrophobic team. Working together intensively, we overcame all obstacles and were able to demonstrate first hand our core values of integrity, collaboration and innovation. We thank GM for recognizing our efforts with this prestigious award.

“We are thrilled to recognize these outstanding suppliers after yet another challenging year in the automotive industry,” said Jeff Morrison, GM vice president of Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “They overcame countless obstacles and exemplified what it means to be resilient, resourceful and determined.
