It’s pretty evident these days that there is so much daunting and negative news happening out there in the auto industry. The industry is experiencing tough times, and no doubt, everyone is feeling it.

However, I’m glad to see that companies are still taking the time to celebrate some truly notable milestones. For example, I have been fortunate to participate in spreading the good word on Tier one auto supplier Faurecia celebrating 10 years in North America

Earlier this year, Honda celebrated producing its 20 millionth vehicle in North America, and back in March, Ford Motor Company similarly celebrated its 100,000th hybrid vehicle. And this month, Johnson Controls is helping promote and celebrate sustainability and the environment by sponsoring the 2009 Igniting Creative Energy Challenge (ICE).

These are all good things – all worth hearing about despite the challenges that the entire auto industry is having to overcome. I look forward to seeing more of these positive news nuggets coming in the near future, and hope others will be open to giving them some much-deserved attention.
