DENSO receives top supplier nod from GM
DENSO International America, parent company of Long Beach-based DENSO Sales California, has been named the General Motors 2006 Supplier of the Year.
The $6 billion-a-year auto parts manufacturer and distributor received the award as recognized for four different products manufactured for GM: a heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system; windshield wipers; fuel injectors; and a navigation system.
DENSO's Long Beach company is a major shipper through the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles.
