Gentex Corp. of Zeeland recently was recognized by Chrysler Group LLC. It was among 11 suppliers to win an award for outstanding performance. Gentex received the award at Chrysler’s annual supplier meeting and awards ceremony in Detroit, the first such ceremony since Chrysler Group and Fiat formed a strategic global alliance in 2009.
“Chrysler introduced 16 new or significantly refreshed vehicles this year, and Gentex is proud to have been a part of that success,” said Enoch Jen, Gentex senior vice president. “Superior quality is one of our primary goals, and to have our employee efforts in this area be recognized is important to us. We share this award with our 3,400 Gentex associates.”
The award was based on an evaluation of Gentex quality, delivery, cost, warranty and partnership. In addition to interior and exterior auto-dimming mirrors, some Chrysler vehicles offer advanced features, including the Gentex SmartBeam high beam assist and rear camera display mirrors.
More than half of Gentex interior mirrors are sold with advanced electronic features, and more than 98 percent of the company’s net sales are derived from the sale of auto-dimming mirrors to every major automaker in the world.
