David Weekley Homes, the nation’s largest privately-held home builder, established the “Partners of Choice Award” in 2003 to recognize outstanding suppliers.

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.

“Aligning all parties in the supply chain to consistently perform at the highest levels is no easy task,” said Bill Justus, vice president of supply chain services and author of the homebuilder’s industry acclaimed supplier evaluation platform. “Our friends at BSH Brands were the first appliance partner to win our “A,A” Partners of Choice Award, and have now repeated for three consecutive years.
