GAF has received its eighth distinguished “Partners of Choice Award” from David Weekley Homes, the country’s largest privately held builder. GAF received an “A” in quality, and is one of only eight suppliers out of the 200 evaluated to be recognized with this honor. Winners compete against every sector of the building materials industry.
“We are so pleased to again receive this honor from a company whose survey measures world-class performance,” stated Paul Bromfield, senior vice president of marketing and business development at GAF. “As a company, we focus on producing the highest-quality product in the industry, and to be recognized specifically in that category is particularly gratifying.”
“With our heightened focus on advanced quality, industry expertise, and creating simple solutions, receiving an award for achieving world-class excellence in quality is especially satisfying,” Bromfield added.
Now in their 13th year, the Partners of Choice Awards are based on the David Weekley Homes’ National Trading Partner Survey, in which approximately 800 of its Team Members are surveyed and asked to rank trading partners in both quality and service with a score from one to ten. The scores for each company are averaged and an alpha ranking is assigned relative to its performance along with other suppliers. Alpha rankings range from an A to an F in increments of 20%.
“The pursuit of world-class excellence is a journey and not simply a point in time. It starts with commitment from a supplier’s leadership, and continues through the successful management of the distribution channel,” said Bill Justus, vice president of supply chain services for David Weekley Homes and chief architect of the home builders’ evaluation platform. “By winning our award for the eighth time in 10 years, GAF has proven they are a world-class provider in delivering quality products to David Weekley Homes.”
