ABC Supply Honored with Esteemed David Weekley Homes Partners of Choice Award

Posted July 30, 2010

BELOIT, Wis. – ABC Supply Co. Inc. has been honored with the prestigious “Partners of Choice Award” from David Weekley Homes, receiving an “A” rating in quality. It is one of only 17 companies to receive the award this year.

ABC Supply is the largest wholesale distributor of roofing in the United States and one of the nation’s largest distributors of siding, windows and other select exterior building products. David Weekley Homes is the nation’s second-largest for-profit, privately held homebuilder.

Now in their seventh year, the “Partners of Choice Awards” are based on the homebuilder’s National Trading Partners Survey, in which 150 suppliers are rated in quality and service by team members from throughout the company. Each quarter, 150 associates are surveyed, for an annual total of 600 reviews. Awards are presented to suppliers who maintain an “A” rating in quality or service, or in both categories (an “A, A” rating), for the previous 12 months.

“We are honored to be named a Partner of Choice,” said David Luck, ABC Supply’s chief executive officer and president. “Our mission is to be the best and easiest service company distributing select exterior building products, and this award is a sign that we’re doing the right things to live out that mission. The survey also gives us valuable feedback that we will use to improve the array of products and services we offer and how we deliver them to our customers.”

“By measuring the experiences that team members from throughout our organization have in working with our suppliers, we ensure that a supplier can’t talk its way to a high score but must earn it with its actions,” said Bill Justus, vice president of supply chain services for David Weekley Homes and chief architect of the supplier evaluation program. “ABC Supply has demonstrated that it is among the best of the best in providing quality products to David Weekley Homes.”
