David Weekley Homes, one of the nation’s largest privately held home builders, is pleased to announce the winners of its 16th annual National Preferred Partner Survey. The award recognizes field and manufacturing partners that have consistently operated at world-class levels, as determined by the home builder’s supplier evaluation platform.

“Our goal is to exceed the expectations of our homebuyers and we can’t do that without quality products and services,” said John Schiegg, vice president of supply chain services for David Weekley Homes. “We are only as good as the company we keep and our experiences have taught us that our National Preferred Partners are the best of the best.”

The National Preferred Trading Partner Survey format was updated in 2020 to a system of two questions with a 1-to-5 rating system for partners and is sent to David Weekley Homes team members that are currently doing business with them in their market. When the Preferred Partners receive their quarterly results, they are shown how they rank amongst National Preferred Partners in their industry as well as the contact information for each David Weekley Homes team member who completed an evaluation for them.
The evaluation process involves a comprehensive system of feedback and discussion that enables David Weekley Homes to measure world-class excellence among all established trade partners and their channel partners. Providers that receive the highest scores throughout the year are presented with the prestigious National Preferred Partners Award.
“We strive to provide the best in design, choice and service to our customers, and our National Preferred Partners play a vital role in helping us achieve that goal with every home we build,” Schiegg said.
A total of 142 companies were evaluated this year and 16% percent achieved the designation of National Preferred Partner.

“At David Weekley Homes, we hold our National Preferred Partners to the highest standards of excellence,” Schiegg said. “Dupont continually demonstrates world-class quality and service in providing an unsurpassed building experience for our customers.”
In addition, Trane, earned the distinction as National Preferred Partner for 11 years.
David Weekley Homes challenges our trade partners to meet the highest standards of quality and service, which allows us to offer a world-class experience for our homebuyers,” Schiegg said. Trane has consistently exemplified our rigorous measures and we congratulate them on their recognition as a National Preferred Partner.”
