David Weekley Homes, one of the nation’s largest privately held homebuilders, announced its 2022 National Preferred Partner winners, and Uponor North America (Uponor) was one of only 12 companies nationwide to receive the prestigious honor. Uponor provides PEX plumbing and fire safety systems for David Weekley Homes, and this marks the ninth consecutive year Uponor has been recognized by the national homebuilder since 2014.
The David Weekley Homes Annual National Preferred Partners Survey Program, which began in 2004, evaluates field and manufacturing partners on customer service and product quality. Only a select few are honored each year with the National Preferred Partner award with even fewer receiving the award for multiple consecutive years.
“Our reputation has been built on providing our home buyers with a quality product and a positive customer service experience,” says John Schiegg, vice president, Supply Chain, David Weekley Homes. “As a National Preferred Partner, Uponor has played a critical role in helping us acquire and maintain that reputation. We are so grateful that National Preferred Partners like Uponor have made it possible for us to continue providing the best in design, choice, and service to our customers.”
Schiegg states that record numbers of home sales, the continuing global pandemic, and significant supply chain disruptions presented an unexpected number of challenges for the homebuilding industry.
“We have been fortunate to have exceptional National Preferred Partners, such as Uponor, who have provided their products and expertise to help us navigate these obstacles so we can continue delivering a high-quality product,” he says.
Being recognized for the ninth year is an honor that Uponor holds high, keeping with the company’s focus to enrich people’s way of life through intelligent water systems that provide comfort, health, and peace of mind.
“We are honored to receive this recognition from David Weekley Homes for the ninth consecutive year,” says Robert Larson, director, Sales National Accounts, Uponor. “Both our companies strive for excellence in providing customers with a quality experience through trusted products and reliable service. Knowing we are among the select few David Weekley Homes partners to receive this award for multiple years in a row brings us great pride and confirmation that we are making a difference in moving the industry forward.”
