Synopsis

With so much negative news emanating from automotive suppliers over the past few years, you might think the "Closed For Business" signs were just about to be hung up on the front doors. Well, despite the bankruptcies, reorganizations and cries of "No Mas" to the OEMs, the bottom line numbers are telling a different story; some of these companies are actually making money....a lot of money.

This week Autoline Detroit unveils its first ever Automotive Supplier Report Card. Based on public information from the corporate reports, John McElroy and the team analyzed the last five years of data and graded more than 20 different suppliers in several areas. Joining John to decifer the data are two automotive consultants who know the players, what they do and how they make their money. Paul Haelterman is the vice president of Global Advisory Services for CSM Worldwide while Eric Merkle is the vice president of Forecasting for IRN.

Join John and his expert panel as they look at the Automotive
Supplier landscape and reveal who is suffering in the desert and who is celebrating next to a cool mountain stream.
