Oak Brook, IL (February 20, 2015) – Elkay Manufacturing was presented with a 2014 Partners in Performance Award as part of Grainger’s annual show in Orlando. Grainger, the leading broad line supplier of maintenance, repair and operating (MRO) products serving businesses and institutions, presents the award annually to a select group of suppliers for outstanding performance throughout the year.
Through this award, suppliers are recognized for excellence in several categories, including responsiveness, information integrity, on-time shipping, management commitment and order fulfillment. Each Grainger supplier receives ratings throughout the year for its respective performance in each of these categories. Out of Grainger's more than 3,500 active suppliers, less than 1 percent are chosen to receive these annual awards.
“We are proud and delighted to have been selected by Grainger to receive this prestigious award,” said Pam Hamilton, Director of National Accounts at Elkay. “Grainger has been an important partner for Elkay for many years, and we are committed to exceeding the exacting service levels that Grainger promises to their customers. We have a very dedicated cross functional team of individuals from across Elkay who focus on ensuring that our work meets Grainger’s service requirements. Receiving this award serves as recognition that our team’s efforts to exceed Grainger’s expectations are paying off.”
"Grainger is proud to recognize Elkay for its outstanding supplier performance," said Fred Costello, Grainger Vice President, Global Product Management. “Our customers expect quality products consistently delivered to the right place at the right time. This is not possible without the commitment, dedication and outstanding service of our Partners in Performance suppliers.”
