IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - August 01, 2016) - For the second year in a row, Bosch home appliances and Thermador have earned the prestigious "Partners of Choice Award" from David Weekley Homes, the largest privately-held homebuilder in the nation. Last year, Bosch and Thermador became the first and only appliance brands to ever receive this recognition in the 12-year history of David Weekley Homes' supplier evaluation platform, which recognizes excellence in both quality and service. The highly-coveted "A,A" ranking was awarded to only 14 of the 200 participating companies.
"We're thrilled to once again receive this prestigious award from our friends and valued partners at David Weekley Homes," said Bob Eustice, director, builder sales for Bosch and Thermador. "Through our partnership, Bosch and Thermador continue to demonstrate the commitment, dedication and value our brands bring to our builder partners and projects. We look forward to continued collaboration and growth with David Weekley Homes in 2016 and beyond."
David Weekley Homes, the nation's largest privately-held homebuilder, challenges its Supply Chain to provide the highest levels of quality products and superior service. The "Partners of Choice Award" was established in 2003 to recognize outstanding suppliers based on David Weekley Homes' rigorous supplier evaluation platform, with its National Trading Partner survey. The survey evaluates each supplier's performance on quality and service based on assessments from approximately 1,000 team members across the David Weekley organization. Measuring access, communication, timelines, reliability, follow-through, confidence levels and other areas that affect the business relationship, the survey provides trading partners with valuable feedback and the opportunity to review and improve channel alignment and performance.
"We are very pleased to recognize our friends at Bosch and Thermador again this year," said Bill Justus, vice president of supply chain and chief architect behind the homebuilder's world-class evaluation platform. "By winning our award last year, Bosch and Thermador achieved something no other appliance manufacturer has done in over 13 years. Now they are repeating their accomplishment, demonstrating that they are the best of the best in the appliance industry in delivering quality products and outstanding service to David Weekley Homes."
