Crescent Electric Supply Company has selected a group of manufacturers to be recognized in the company’s inaugural Supplier Recognition Program. Winners were determined by a combination of scores earned in a number of operational areas, including financial, inventory, training and logistics.
“As a means of managing and strengthening our partnerships with key suppliers, we implemented a supplier management report card at the beginning of 2012,” said Dick Cody, Crescent’s vice president of supplier management. “Suppliers were grouped into categories and measured against other companies who manufactured similar products.”
“We shared this report with our suppliers and showed them how to use the data to strengthen their partnership with us, resulting in increased sales and operating efficiencies for both organizations,” Cody added.
The 2012 Supplier Recognition Program Award winners include:
- GE Lighting, overall winner
- Arlington Industries, boxes/fittings/enclosures
- Cerro Wire, wire/cable
- Hubbell Wiring Devices, wiring devices
- Ideal Industries, accessories
- Juno Lighting Group/Schneider, lighting fixtures
- Prime Conduit, PVC
- Schneider Electric, distribution/control
- Universal Lighting Technologies, lamps/ballast/lighting controls
- Wheatland Tube, steel conduit
