SAVANNAH, Ga. -- Webb Wheel Products and Manus Products have recently been honoured at the Great Dane 2013 Supplier of the Year awards.
Webb Wheel Products (OEM Business Unit) was recognized in the large vendor category and Manus Products was honoured in the small vendor category.
Candidates for the awards were selected based on a formal survey scoring the company’s top 100 suppliers at each of Great Dane’s eight manufacturing facilities.
Based on that preliminary survey, 14 large suppliers (greater than $3M in sales to Great Dane) and eight small suppliers qualified for consideration with overall scores of 90% or higher. The two overall winners were ultimately selected by Great Dane’s Corporate Procurement, Quality and Engineering teams based on scoring completed by representatives from each plant.
Suppliers were evaluated in multiple areas including overall quality of product, competitive pricing, timely shipments, accuracy of shipments, packaging, response to problems, cooperation on returns, and technical assistance.
“Our suppliers play an extremely important role in the success of our company, and in ensuring that our products and services remain the best the industry has to offer,” Brege said. “Over the past year, both Webb Wheel Products and Manus Products have done a great job for us, and have distinguished themselves among a very impressive group of suppliers that we depend on every day. We greatly appreciate their hard work and dedication and are pleased to recognize them with these awards.”
