Says Joe Limbaugh, Motion’s executive vice president of supply chain, operations support, marketing and enterprise excellence: “Suppliers who finished in our top 50 are the best of the best in our industry, and to rank first in this elite group is extremely impressive – especially with our rigorous rating system. We look forward to mutual success with Gates in 2022 and beyond.”
