2014 Partners of Choice Award Apple Valley, Minn. — Uponor North America (Uponor) was recently honored with the prestigious Partners of Choice Award from Houston-based Weekley Homes, the nation's largest privately held home builder and the first builder in the United States to be awarded the Triple Crown of American Home Building.

Uponor is one of only 13 companies out of 200 David Weekley Homes' U.S. suppliers to receive the highly coveted "A,A" ranking for world-class excellence in both quality and service.

The award is based on the home builder's elaborate supplier evaluation platform, which features their comprehensive National Trading Partner Survey. The survey is administered to approximately 800 team members from all levels of the David Weekley Homes organization, in which raters are asked to evaluate their trading partners on the basis of quality and service. Those companies that consistently rate in the top 20 percent of the rankings each quarter receive the "A,A" ranking for the year signifying an "A" in both quality and service.

Bill Justus, vice president of Supply Chain Services at David Weekley Homes, started the supplier-assessment platform in 2004 to improve the relationship and interaction between the builder and its suppliers. Ten years later, the company's National Trading Partner Survey has become a way of life for the builder and its suppliers to ensure both sides are working together toward a common goal of excellence.

"You can't talk your way to a good score," says Justus. "The only way to get an 'A,A' ranking is through consistent, sustained action."

This is the first Partners of Choice Award for Uponor, which provides PEX plumbing and fire sprinkler systems for David Weekley Homes.

"We are very honored to receive this recognition," says Carl Hines, national builder sales manager at Uponor. "Being chosen by the employees of David Weekley Homes as a top supplier is quite humbling, and we intend to continue to provide only superior quality and service in our partnership.
