     Every year, GM recognizes suppliers for implementing major cost
 reductions.  Companies that obtained significantly greater savings than in
 previous years are awarded the Outstanding Certificate of Best Supplier.  This
 year, Delphi, together with three other companies, are being called the "GM
 Brazil Dream Team" suppliers.  The criteria used by GM for this award includes
 superior performance in the areas of quality, service, technology and price.
     Quality: In 2002, Delphi Jaguariuna was awarded the Banas Quality Award,
 and in 2001, it was granted the Delphi Excellence Award.  The plant was also
 certified with ISO14001 and TS16949 in 2002.  The site has also won a number
 of Quality Awards, within Delphi over the last 3 years.
     Service: Delphi maintains an efficient and qualified team to answer any
 questions in Engineering or any service that may be required.  The Delphi
 Services Engineering support is available throughout the region.
     Technology: The Compact Variable Compressor (CVC) offers many word class
 and state of the art features that improve vehicle performance.  Enhanced
 system performance and fuel savings is a result of advanced temperature
 control, non-cycling clutch feature, with dramatically reduced noise,
 vibration, and harshness.  It also is easily assembled into vehicles as a part
 of air conditioning kits available in the market.
     Value: Delphi's objective is to deliver its customers the best performance
 in terms of products and services, at the best value.  Customer recognition
 has been very positive.
     Delphi has operated in the climate control market in Brazil since 1991,
 when the plant in Piracicaba (SP) was opened.  As part of its expansion
 program, the Piracicaba Operations were consolidated into the Jaguariuna
 Compressor Facility, where it has become the full service heating, air
 conditioning, and ventilation facility of today.  Increasing production line
 efficiency and enhanced customer service have already brought the plant
 recognition by becoming a benchmark in lean manufacturing, organizational
 effectiveness, and has achieved a world class safety record.  The plant offers
 products and services both to OEMs and to aftermarket.
