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."
