Crescent Electric Announces Top Supplier Awards of 2012
EAST DUBUQUE, Illinois, March 25, 2013 — Crescent Electric Supply Company has selected an elite 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," noted Dick Cody, Crescent's Vice President of Supplier Management, "we implemented a supplier management report card at the beginning of 2012. 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", Cody continued, "resulting in increased sales and operating efficiencies for both organizations."
The 2012 Supplier Recognition Program Award Winners include:
|GE Lighting||Overall Winner|
|Hubbell Wiring Devices||Wiring Devices|
|Juno Lighting Group/Schneider||Lighting Fixtures|
|Universal Lighting Technologies||Lamps/Ballasts/Lighting Controls|
|Wheatland Tube||Steel Conduit|
The award presentations were made during Crescent's National Sales Conference in St. Charles, Illinois on March 10—14, 2013.
