HOPKINTON, Mass., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- EMC Corporation, the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced that automotive giant Chrysler LLC has recognized EMC with the 2007 Chrysler Supplier Pentastar Award in the General Goods and Services category.
"Our suppliers play a critical role in Chrysler's ability to meet our customers' demands for vehicles with outstanding quality and innovative technology," said Chrysler Executive Vice President - Procurement John Campi. "We are proud to recognize their outstanding performance and continued contribution to our success."
The recipients of the 2007 Chrysler Supplier Pentastar Awards were selected based in part upon the unanimous decision of senior members of the Chrysler Procurement, Supplier Quality and Supply organizations, and the supplier's performance as measured by Chrysler's External Balance Scorecard -- a fact-based system that measures the critical value drivers of quality, technology, cost and delivery -- factors the company uses to determine sourcing strategies.
"We are honored to be among Chrysler's top-performing suppliers," said Frank Hauck, EMC's Executive Vice President, Customer Operations. "For more than 10 years, we have strived to provide Chrysler with high-value, low-risk information infrastructure solutions to maximize the value of their information assets, improve IT service levels and lower costs. We look forward to being a part of their continued success."
EMC was presented with the award during the company's Supplier Pentastar Awards ceremony at the 2008 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Mich. The ceremony, which recognizes Chrysler and its suppliers' shared vision for collaboration and innovation, is the first for the automaker since becoming a private concern in 2007.
