WILMINGTON, Del., Aug. 28, 2017 – DuPont announces that it has once again received the Partners of Choice Award for an A rating in both quality and service from David Weekley Homes, the largest privately held U.S. homebuilder. Out of approximately 200 participating companies, DuPont™ Tyvek® was one of 17 recipients to receive an A rating in both quality and service. It is the sixth time DuPont™ Tyvek® has received this prestigious recognition.
“We are honored to again receive the Partners of Choice Award,” said Lisa Jenkins, North America business leader, DuPont™ Tyvek® Building Envelope Solutions. “This award builds upon our commitment to providing exceptional quality for our customers. DuPont works every day to exceed our customers’ expectations, and this award from a premier national builder is a great recognition of our team’s efforts.”
The awards are based on David Weekley’s comprehensive supplier feedback platform that features its National Trading Partners Survey, a quarterly review of approximately 200 suppliers. A rigorous assessment is based on the builder’s unique supplier rating system by about 800 team members from every market and every level inside their organization. Beyond rating trading partners on quality and service, Weekley team members respond to specific questions on the challenges and preferences in managing business-to-business relationships.
“The National Trading Partner Survey is a practical way for measuring world-class excellence. It analyzes and compares the supplier’s performance against all other participating companies, and ranks their results. After all, a company is truly world-class when they are willing to put their products and services up against anyone, anytime, anywhere and come out on top,” said Bill Justus, vice president of Supply Chain Services for David Weekley Homes. “Our feedback platform will not allow rhetoric to result in a company’s “A” ranking. It takes time, energy and commitment to earn our award.”
The “Double A” Partners of Choice Award rankings result from strategic and efficient channel alignment. The accolade recognizes the concerted effort put forth throughout the year by the DuPont team to best meet the needs of its valued customer and partner, David Weekley Homes. DuPont™ Tyvek® provides building solutions that help make homes more beautiful, durable and energy-efficient by delivering dynamic science in a service-oriented manner.
David Weekley Homes, founded in 1976, is headquartered in Houston and operates in 23 cities across the United States. David Weekley Homes was the first builder in the United States to be awarded the Triple Crown of American Home Building, an honor which includes “America’s Best Builder,” “National Housing Quality Award” and “National Builder of the Year.” Weekley has also appeared 11 times on FORTUNE magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For®” list. Since inception, David Weekley Homes has closed more than 80,000 homes. For more information about David Weekley Homes, visit the company’s website at www.davidweekleyhomes.com.
