Houston, Texas-based David Weekley Homes has named its annual list of "Partners of Choice" Award winners, which recognizes the suppliers who ranked the highest on its now decade-old ranking system.
About 800 David Weekley employees contribute to the evaluation process, assessing supplier performance according to accessibility, communication, timeliness, reliability, follow-through and more.
Among the winners were those who fell into the top tier with an "A,A" ranking for both quality and service: Dow, DuPont, Eaton Corporation, In Sink Erator, Johns Manville, Louisiana Pacific, Office Depot, Rinnai, Seacoast Supply, Simpson Strong Tie, Skelton Business Equipment, Uponor and Zurn.
Of those, both In Sink Erator and Uponor are first-time winners of the "A,A" ranking.
“It is an honor to receive this prestigious award from such a great company and partner,” Louisiana Pacific specialty sales director Craig Sichling said. “Providing consistent quality and service is at the heart of our company’s promise to our customers. To be honored by one of the nation’s largest builders for fulfilling that promise speaks volumes about the effort that LP employees at all levels put into what they do every day.”
A number of companies earned an "A" in either quality or service, including Acme Bricks, Building Specialties - Texas, Carrier, GAF, Home Team Pest Defense, Honeywell, Lennox HVAC and Square D.
