Sherwin-Williams Earns An “A” for Service From David Weekley Homes
CLEVELAND — July 29, 2013 — Sherwin-Williams has been honored with the highly coveted “Partners of Choice” Award from David Weekley Homes, the nation’s largest privately held home builder.
The Partners of Choice Awards are presented to suppliers that receive the highest marks in a comprehensive evaluation program involving more than 600 David Weekley Homes team members from all levels of the organization. Sherwin-Williams is one of only eight suppliers receiving the single “A” award for achieving the highest ranking in service.
Bill Justus, vice president of supply chain services for David Weekley Homes, implemented the supplier review platform in 2004 to ensure the highest level of homebuyer satisfaction. The program challenges all parties in the supply chain to deliver competitively priced products efficiently and consistently to the home builder. Anchored by a quarterly review of approximately 175 suppliers, the program analyzes supplier performance across diverse industries, facilitates feedback and recognizes truly outstanding achievers.
“To attain this award, a supplier must be best in class — not just in producing products, but also in managing the channel — to ensure a seamless installation of products in our homes,” said Justus. “You can’t talk your way to a good score; it is hard-earned through a strong internal commitment and an investment of time and resources in the process. Partners such as Sherwin-Williams understand this, and have achieved world-class service to our company through their actions.”
Through its more than 3,500 stores and 1,800 sales representatives, Sherwin-Williams provides fast, flexible, responsive service and personalized, expert advice to meet the coating and color needs of builders, designers, specifiers, property managers and contractors. As North America’s largest single-source supplier of high-quality paints, stains, masonry coatings and brand-name wall and floor coverings, Sherwin-Williams is proud to have earned the EPA Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award for its innovative acrylic alkyd technology.
