Forma Automotive, under the direction of CEO Rosa Santana, was selected as Supplier of the Year by the Southwest Minority Supplier Development Council (SMSDC). Forma Automotive, established in 2014 as Toyota’s first Hispanic woman-owned direct Tier I supplier, received this prestigious award during the 2017 SMSDC Face Time Expo & Awards Ceremony held at the Westin Riverwalk in San Antonio on June 8th.

Corporate members of SMSDC nominate certified minority owned suppliers who demonstrate continued excellence. From these nominations, SMSDC honors one supplier for their business acumen and community service. Forma Automotive was nominated by Toyota Motor Manufacturing Texas.

Karen Box, CEO of SMSDC and Greg Laskey, General Manager Electrical & Body at Toyota presented Rosa Santana with her award. “Congratulations to Rosa and the Forma team on winning SMSDC Supplier of the Year,” says Greg Laskey. “This award is a testament to the dedication, hard work, and commitment to quality that this strategic business partner contributes every day. If we are measured by the company we keep, we cannot think of a better supplier to be associated with.”

“To have been nominated by Toyota within two years of becoming a direct Tier I supplier highlights Forma’s commitment and determination to deliver quality products on time,” says Forma Automotive CEO Rosa Santana. “Our team continually strives to drive performance improvements and we are grateful to be recognized for our results.”

The Southwest Minority Supplier Development Council (SMSDC), a National Minority Supplier Development Council affiliate, serves Southwest Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico and is the minority business owner’s direct link to corporate America.
