PITTSBURGH -- July 29, 2013 -- Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton today announced it earned the distinguished “Partners of Choice” Award from David Weekley Homes for the sixth year. Eaton is one of eight suppliers this year to achieve an “A” ranking in either quality or service over a 12-month period from David Weekley Homes, the largest privately held homebuilder in the United States. The Partners of Choice Award places Eaton in the top percent of companies that participate in the homebuilder’s interactive evaluation platform.
David Weekley Homes conducts quarterly reviews of approximately 175 suppliers by 600 team members at all levels of the organization. This National Trading Partner Survey is the engine behind the Performance Rating System for determining excellence, by rating and ranking suppliers. Every supplier receives a scorecard each quarter with results, then through a series of discussions, meetings and coaching calls, David Weekley Homes and its suppliers search for the best way to achieve excellence together. Through this performance review system, David Weekley Homes takes “partnering with its suppliers” to a world-class level. By maintaining either an “A, A” rating for both Quality and Service or an “A” rating in Quality or Service for the previous 12 months, suppliers are presented with the “Partners Choice Award.”
“We source products from top competitors in each industry. What separates great from good providers are those that realize they must actively manage the supply chain to consistently deliver high quality, competitively priced products,” said Bill Justus, vice president, Supply Chain Services, David Weekley Homes. “The evaluation process is rigorous, and only those that are committed to excellence will do well. Our friends at Eaton have demonstrated through their actions that they are world-class in delivering service to David Weekley Homes.”
