Aug 02, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
USG Corp., a building products company, and its distribution subsidiary, L&W Supply Corp., received the David Weekley Homes "Partners of Choice" Award for the sixth year in a row.
The 2012 award represents the fifth straight year L&W's Seacoast Supply achieved an "A,A" ranking, which is the highest ranking a supplier can receive, as part of the home builder's interactive supplier evaluation system.
David Weekley Homes, a for-profit, privately-held home builder, implemented its interactive supplier evaluation system, the "Partners of Choice" Award, in 2004.
The evaluation platform allows David Weekley Homes to analyze supplier performance in diverse industries, provide feedback, and recognize outstanding partners.
"Our evaluation process provides suppliers with information on a 7/24 basis, and we dedicate resources to work with all of our trading partners that are serious about pursuing excellence," said Justus, the brains behind the highly acclaimed evaluation system. "What this means is that you cannot talk your way to a good score. Our friends at Seacoast Supply have invested in the process and consequently have earned the trust and respect of our team members. Through their actions they have proven to be a world class partner."
"We have a long standing relationship with David Weekley Homes, and so it is a great honor to once again be recognized as a partner," said Tim Mahaffey, vice president, South Division, L&W Supply. "The Partner of Choice evaluation system is rigorous, involving a series of discussions, meetings and coaching calls between David Weekley employees and Seacoast Supply employees. We work closely together to formulate plans to achieve excellence and strengthen our partnership. David Weekley Homes clearly takes partnership with its suppliers to world-class levels."
David Weekley Homes presented L&W Supply with the 2012 Partner of Choice Award at their national account meeting on July 26th in Houston.
USG is a manufacturer and distributor of high-performance building systems.
