DuPont Performance Building Solutions (PBS), a global business unit of DuPont, today announced that it has once again received the “A,A” Partners of Choice Award from David Weekley Homes, the home building industry’s gold standard for recognizing world-class performance. David Weekley Homes, the nation's largest privately held home builder, has been evaluating suppliers since 2004 with its world-class Supplier Evaluation Platform.
Based on the idea that customer excellence is continuously earned, David Weekley Homes began its Supplier Evaluation Platform to measure performances in reliability, communication, timeliness, follow-through and other areas critical to the business relationship. At the heart of the process is the "National Trading Partner Survey," which is distributed through more than 1,000 of the company's cross-functional team members, ranging from top executives to accounting. The result of this rigorous process has been improved service, channel costs and a heightened degree of homeowner satisfaction.
This year, DuPont PBS has received an “A,A” in Quality and Service award. The former Dow and DuPont businesses are no strangers to this award, with Dow winning for 15 consecutive years – the longest streak of more than 200 participating companies – and DuPont receiving this prestigious award for eight consecutive years. The newly combined DuPont PBS now offers customers industry-leading materials for air, water and thermal protection of all six sides of the building envelope – the walls, roof and foundation. Powerhouse brands such as DuPont™ Tyvek® Building Envelopes, STYROFOAM™ Brand Extruded Polystyrene (XPS), and GREAT STUFF™ Insulating Foam Sealants work together seamlessly under DuPont PBS to enhance the building envelope and meet the market’s increased performance expectations.
“DuPont Performance Building Solutions continues to set the bar amongst our National Trading Partners by earning this prestigious distinction,” said John Schiegg, Director of Supply Chain Services for David Weekley Homes. “We rely on our partners to deliver quality products and superior service to our customers on every home, every time."
“We’re honored to receive the Partners of Choice Award from David Weekley Homes and see this achievement as a testament to our commitment and dedication to customers,” said Alan Hubbell, North America Residential Marketing Manager.
