DALLAS, Aug. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Lennox Industries Inc. has been honored with the "Partners of Choice" Award from David Weekley Homes, the largest privately held homebuilder in America. Of the 200 companies evaluated by David Weekley Homes, only 8 – including Lennox, a recognized name in heating and air conditioning systems – were recognized for an "A" ranking in service. This is the sixth time for Lennox to have been recognized as a "Partners of Choice" award winner.
"The David Weekley Homes evaluation platform is really an ongoing continuous improvement program with constant two-way dialogue on how to make our channel delivery as streamlined and efficient as possible. Certainly our relationship with our customer, David Weekley Homes, is stronger because of it, but the benefits for us extend even beyond," said John Webster, Lennox Director, Residential New Construction (RNC). "We are delighted to be recognized by such a prestigious homebuilder and it is truly a team effort, from our installing independent Lennox RNC dealer to our dedicated Lennox sales team. And of course, all the work that goes on to make that relationship possible: our engineering, manufacturing, distribution, customer service, and technical support teams. Everyone plays a role in making this award possible."
At the heart of the evaluation platform is the homebuilder's National Trading Partner Survey. Approximately 1,000 David Weekly team members review approximately 200 national trading partners on a quarterly basis to determine an annual rating.
"We challenge our entire Supply Chain to provide the highest levels of quality products and superior service. Through our rigorous process we are able to measure world-class excellence in a very practical way that benefits both us and our supplier partners," said Bill Justus Vice President of Supply Chain Services for David Weekley Homes and primary author of this world-class platform.
