Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) August 06, 2014
DuPont Building Innovations has again received the Partners of Choice Award for quality and service from David Weekley Homes, the largest privately held U.S. homebuilder. Out of approximately 200 participating companies, DuPont Building Innovations was one of only 13 to receive the coveted “A, A” rating as a Partners of Choice Award Winner. It is the third time DuPont Building Innovations has received this recognition.
“We are honored to receive the prestigious ‘A, A’ Partners of Choice Award,” said Angela Strzelecki, North America business director, DuPont Building Innovations. “This award builds upon our commitment to providing exceptional quality and service for our customers. DuPont works every day to exceed our customers’ expectations, and this award from a premier national builder is a great recognition of our team’s efforts.”
The awards are based on David Weekley’s comprehensive feedback platform, which features its National Trading Partners Survey, a quarterly review of approximately 200 suppliers. A rigorous assessment is based on the builder’s unique supplier rating system by approximately 800 team members from every market and every level inside their organization. Beyond rating trading partners on quality and service, Weekley team members respond to specific questions on the challenges and preferences in managing business-to-business relationships.
“The National Trading Partner Survey is a practical way for measuring world-class excellence. It analyzes and compares the supplier’s performance against all other participating companies, and ranks their performance. After all, a company is truly world-class when they are willing to put their products and services up against anyone, anytime, anywhere and come out on top,” said Bill Justus, vice president of Supply Chain Services for David Weekley Homes. “Our feedback platform will not allow rhetoric to result in a company’s ‘A, A’ ranking. It takes time, energy, and commitment to earn our award.”
The highest ‘A, A’ Partners of Choice Award rating results from strategic and efficient channel alignment. The accolade recognizes the concerted effort put forth throughout the year by the DuPont team to best meet the needs of its valued customer and partner, David Weekley Homes.
