LP: David Weekley’s “Partners of Choice”

LP Building Products has received the 2011 “Partners of Choice” Award for service from Houston-based home builder David Weekley Homes. LP, which was awarded an “A” in the service category, was one of 17 companies to receive an award out of about 150 of the company’s trade partners.

“It is an honor to receive this award and to be considered best in class by David Weekley Homes team members,” said Mike Sims, VP sales, LP Building Products. “The ‘Partners of Choice’ Award reflects LP Building Products’ commitment to David Weekley Homes and to all of our customers.”

David Weekley Homes’ supplier evaluation process is determined by the National Trading Partner Survey, a quarterly evaluation submitted by team members from every market and level inside the organization. The home builder’s team members rate trading partners on a scale of one to 10. Scores are then averaged and ranked from “A” to “F” in 20% increments.

“Our unique rating system allows the comparison of different companies from diverse industries in support of the home building industry and provides a quantifiable method to measure excellence,” said Bill Justus, VP supply chain services for David Weekley Homes, and chief architect behind this world-class evaluation platform. “Winning companies must ensure that not only themselves, but their channel partners are in alignment in delivering their products effectively and efficiently to their customer, David Weekley Homes.”
