Rüsselsheim.  General Motors has received an award for its outstanding contribution to competitive business development in Aragon, Spain.

 

The Government of Aragon presented GM with a Special Anniversary Honor during its 20th annual celebrations of local business excellence.

 

Opel’s Chief Financial Officer, Michael Lohscheller, accompanied by Antonio Cobo, Managing Director GM España, accepted the award on behalf of GM Chairman and CEO, Mary Barra.

 

“This award is a great honor for General Motors and GM España” said Lohscheller. “General Motors knows that it can rely on GM España. The excellent launch of our new MOKKA X at the Zaragoza plant is another example of how the Spanish team is setting the standards for productivity, efficiency improvement, quality and innovation in the industry."

 

The award ceremony took place on November 16 in the Congress Palace of Zaragoza. It was attended by more than 1,000 managers from all over Spain, together with representatives from the regional government and Spanish institutions.

 

The Special Anniversary Honor is GM’s second award for business excellence in Aragon. In 2015 GM España received the “Gold Seal to Business Excellence by Aragon Empresa”. Only eight companies in Aragon have received this recognition.
