FREMONT, CA -- Delta Electronics was named a GM Innovation award winner during General Motors 24th annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony.
GM debuted its Innovation award to recognize five suppliers among thousands globally who brought new innovations to the company that benefit customers. Delta Electronics was named a first-ever Innovation award winner for its 3.6kw Gen 2 On Board Charger Module (OBCM) for General Motors' Chevy Volt. The new OBCM offers leading power conversion efficiency of up to 96.5 percent, excellent reliability, and a compact size that is 40 percent smaller and 20 percent lighter than the previous generation of Delta's on-board charger. Delta Electronics' new 3.6kw Gen 2 OBCM directly contributes to the Chevy Volt's improved miles per gallon gasoline equivalent, which is a proud achievement for Delta Electronics.
During the event, GM also recognized 110 of its best suppliers from 17 countries who have consistently exceeded GM's expectations, created outstanding value, or introduced new innovations to the company. GM recognized the most suppliers since debuting the Supplier of the Year event in 1992, representing a nearly 40 percent increase compared to 79 recipients in 2014. More than half are repeat Supplier of the Year winners from 2014.
