Winners meet or exceed a stringent set of quality performance criteria

Johnson Controls was among the first recipients of the new GM Quality
Excellence Award for consistent outstanding quality for a range of products it
provides to General Motors. The award went to five of the company's plants
that are located throughout the world.

"Quality and customer satisfaction are fundamental to how we operate at
Johnson Controls," said Stephen A. Roell, chairman and chief executive officer
of Johnson Controls. "We are honored that General Motors, a long-standing and
valued customer of Johnson Controls recognized us for our achievements with
five GM Quality Excellence Awards."

Johnson Controls plants receiving the global automaker's award are: seating
plants in St. Petersburg, Russia, Saragossa, Spain and Lerma, Mexico, a
headliner plant in Lansing, U.S. and a battery plant in Sorocaba, Brazil.

Winners meet or exceed a stringent set of quality performance criteria set by

organization. The GM Supplier Quality Excellence Award recognized about 7
percent of product suppliers - those who have demonstrated the highest levels
of quality performance over the previous 12 months.
