Global purchasing executives from DaimlerChrysler Corp., Ford Motor Co. and General Motors Corp. will speak about the importance of collaboration between automakers and suppliers at the Auto-Tech conference on Sept. 1.

Speakers include Thomas W. Sidlik, DaimlerChrysler Corp. executive vice president of global procurement and supply; Thomas K. (Tony) Brown, Ford Motor Co. vice president of global purchasing; and Bo.
