DETROIT – The National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) has announced Global Strategic Supply Solutions (GS3 Global) as a recipient of the 2015 Regional Supplier of the Year Award.

The award recognizes minority suppliers who have distinguished themselves and their businesses by successfully demonstrating growth in sales and employment while overcoming significant obstacles; consistently providing high quality products, services and solutions at competitive prices; and significantly contributing to the growth and development of their communities.

Under the stewardship of CEO and co-founder Lisa Lunsford, GS3 Global has distinguished itself as a young company that has experienced sustained growth during a period of harsh economic challenges for the automotive and manufacturing industries, particularly in the Midwest.  Founded in 2010, GS3 Global has positioned itself as an industry innovator in supply chain management, incorporating global freight, assembly and manufacturing. In the past two years, the company has generated over $30 million in revenue and doubled its workforce.

Only sixteen businesses were selected as 2015 Regional Supplier of the Year winners from a field of over 12,000 NMSDC-certified companies across the country.  As an honoree in the Central Region, GS3 Global is eligible to be one of four winners of the National Supplier of the Year Award, to be announced on October 21 at the 2015 NMSDC Conference Awards Banquet in San Diego, California.

GS3 Global is a Tier One supplier to major automotive original equipment manufacturers.  The company, based in Livonia, Michigan, also specializes in providing engineering as a service, working directly with clients to engineer, manufacture, assemble, package and ship solutions that exceed expectations.

GS3 Global was previously honored as a Supplier of the Year by the Michigan Minority Supplier Development Council (MMSDC) in October 2014.
