SAVANNAH, Tenn., Aug. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- American Bath Group announced today that it has received the prestigious "Partners of Choice" Award from David Weekley Homes, the nation's largest private home builder. In its first year as a National Trading Partner, American Bath Group received an "A" rating for excellence in service during calendar year 2016, and is the only bath manufacturer to receive this honor since its inception in 2004. The award was presented at the Partners of Choice award celebration on August 24, 2017 in Houston, Texas.
The "Partners of Choice" award recipients represent the top performers in the National Trading Partners Survey, the rigorous evaluation and communication platform that examines partner performance and provides feedback that challenges suppliers to execute at world-class levels. The National Trading Partners Survey was developed by Bill Justus, Vice President of Supply Chain Services for David Weekley Homes, and appraises the builder's suppliers in the areas of reliability, timeliness, follow-through and other critical business areas. Twenty-five of more than 200 industry-diverse partners, including manufacturers, distributors and installers were awarded the "Partners of Choice" designation.
"World-class excellence is when you put your products and services up against any company, anytime, anywhere, and you come out on top," said Justus. "These companies have been assessed against organizations in many industries, and of varying sizes, and have demonstrated their understanding and commitment in delivering the highest levels of quality and service to David Weekley Homes. In its first full year participating in our program, American Bath Group has joined an elite group of world-class partners."
