Simpson Strong-Tie Earns Partners of Choice Award for Eighth Consecutive Year

Simpson Strong-Tie has earned the A,A Partners of Choice award, conferring honors for both quality and service, for the eighth consecutive year from David Weekley Homes. Simpson Strong-Tie is one of two companies to receive the Partners of Choice award, which denotes an “A” ranking in either quality or service, or both for all 14 years since the program began.

The Partners of Choice award is part of the David Weekley Homes Supplier Evaluation Platform, a quarterly review of more than 200 national trading partners. Approximately 1,000 team members participate in the review. Their feedback provides partners an opportunity to evaluate and improve their channel alignment and performance. Survey feedback is offered to suppliers and conducted through a series of individual and group discussions, mentoring calls and strategy sessions to ensure ongoing improvement. The award program celebrates the suppliers who earn an “A” in quality, service or both within a 12-month period.

Every supply chain partner is evaluated and measured by the same standards, regardless of their industry or product. “Because of our grading system, suppliers across business segments are evaluated equally on their ability and agility to handle challenges throughout the supply chain,” says Bill Justus, vice president of supply chain services for David Weekley Homes. “This process enables us to look at the skillfulness of their product delivery and customer service. We aren’t just buying a supplier’s product, we’re buying their expertise, and the companies we recognize with this award are best-in-class.”

Simpson Strong-Tie is one of eight companies to receive the 2018 “A,A” ranking for the award. “Receiving the Partners of Choice award for 14 years in a row demonstrates not only how Simpson Strong-Tie products stand the test of time through continuing economic challenges, but how our customer service does as well,” says Nate Johnston, vice president of builder sales for Simpson Strong-Tie. “We strive every day to provide customer service and value to our partners, it is our number one mission.”
