Comau was recognized with the GM Innovation Award winner during General Motors’ 25th annual Supplier of the Year awards ceremony on March 31 in Orlando, Florida.

Comau was named one of eight 2016 Innovation Award winners for creating a flexible robotic body assembly framing system for pre-production operations, based on the use of Comau’s standard products that have been adapted by General Motors. The solution will allow pre-production vehicles to be more easily manufactured using similar tooling and processes as they would in actual operations.

During the award ceremony, GM recognized 118 of its suppliers from 15 countries that, according to the company, have consistently exceeded its expectations by creating value or introduced innovations. GM recognized the most suppliers since debuting the Supplier of the Year event in 1992.
