BSH Home Appliances Corporation has announced that its luxury brand Thermador and premium brand Bosch home appliances have again been recognized with the nationally acclaimed Partners of Choice Award from David Weekley Homes, the largest privately held homebuilder in the nation. Thermador and Bosch received an A ranking for quality. In the 15-year history of the David Weekley Homes’ supplier evaluation, Bosch and Thermador are the only appliance brands to receive this recognition, and now have done it for 4 consecutive years.
The brands were selected from a pool of 200 companies and are among only 25 organizations to receive an award in 2018. This nationally acclaimed award demonstrates the value that Thermador and Bosch, along their valued dealer partners, provide to builder projects across the United States.
“Our Thermador and Bosch brands, together with our incredible dealer partners, are committed to delivering excellence to the builder community. We are pleased that our continued hard work has made our reputation synonymous with quality,” said Bob Eustice, VP builder sales for BSH Home Appliances. “We are proud to be recognized as an outstanding partner by David Weekley Homes for the fourth year in a row.”
David Weekley Homes, the nation’s largest privately-held home builder, established the Partners of Choice Award in 2003 to recognize suppliers that provide world-class quality and service to the homebuilder’s organization. The award is based on David Weekley Homes’ rigorous supplier evaluation platform, with the engine being its National Trading Partner survey. The survey evaluates each supplier’s performance on quality and service based on assessments from approximately 1000 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.
“In today’s world, it’s not good enough to simply produce an outstanding product,” said Bill Justus, vice president of supply chain services and author of the home builders’ industry acclaimed supplier evaluation platform. “Manufacturers must look beyond their walls to ensure the distribution channel is doing its job in consistently providing the highest quality products at a competitive price, installed properly and timely in our homes. Our friends at BSH, through the Thermador and Bosch brands, have demonstrated this. They are truly world-class in delivering quality products to David Weekley Homes.” – Globe Newswire
