Supplier Innovation
Challenge 2024

Innovation is not about ideas.
It's about making ideas happen.

Annual Report
Supplier Innovation Challenge 2024 - COMING SOON
We will notify you here once the submissions are open!

The Supplier Innovation Challenge is a global ideas competition, where both existing and new potential suppliers can submit their ideas outside the standard RFQ process. Ideas can be an initial rough draft, an "out-of-the-box" idea, or a creative concept for products, processes, technologies, materials or applications in the fields of our Magna Powertrain products: e-motor, inverter & transmission. ​​​​​​​

At the final event - the Supplier Innovation Day - the finalists will present their idea and concept and a winner will be announced and awarded with the Supplier Innovation Challenge Award.​​​​​​​

"This initiative is a great way to promote the early involvement of suppliers and co-engineering processes as well as the joint development of innovative products with the aim of a successful and long-term collaboration."​​​​​​​

Engineer, AE Future Innovations & Technologies, Magna Powertrain

Steve Jobs realized that great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.

To apply this concept we ask you to share your new, creative, inspired, “out-of-the-box”, breakthrough ideas and concepts for products, processes, technologies, materials and applications with us. Together we can develop them further. Together we can make it happen!
