Greenville-based Michelin North America nominated HTI for Michelin’s Global Supplier of the Year.

The awards ceremony took place at the “Aventure Michelin” in Clermont-Ferrand, France.
Jean-Dominique Senard, CEO and Managing General Partner of the Michelin Group, and four members of the Group Executive Committee presented the awards. HTI was the sole recipient in the field of Services Purchasing and the only North American company to be honored.
HTI partners with Michelin to provide project management services and contingent outsourcing of labor for light industrial projects at five Michelin North America locations.
“The partnership that we have with Michelin is very special. They open up the door for us to improve processes and push us to present innovative ideas to improve experiences,” said Brian Buchanan, HTI’s VP of Industrial Operations. “I understand fully why Michelin is one of the best companies in the world to work for. They are also one of the best companies in the world to work with.”
“Receiving the Michelin Global Supplier of the Year Award has been one of the greatest honors bestowed upon HTI. It is a testament to our hard-work, dedication and commitment to excellence. Michelin’s equally strong commitment to people and innovation makes this partnership mutually rewarding,”
Said Herb Dew, CEO of HTI.
