Crescent Electric Supply Co., East Dubuque, Ill., has selected a group of manufacturers to be recognized in its inaugural Supplier Recognition Program. Winners were determined by a combination of scores earned in a number of operational areas, including financial, inventory, training and logistics. The award presentations were made during Crescent’s National Sales Conference in St. Charles, Illinois on March 10 -14, 2013.

“As a means of managing and strengthening our partnerships with key suppliers we implemented a supplier management report card at the beginning of 2012. Suppliers were grouped into categories and measured against other companies who manufactured similar products,” said Dick Cody, Crescent’s V.P. of supplier management. “We shared this report with our suppliers and showed them how to use the data to strengthen their partnership with us, resulting in increased sales and operating efficiencies for both organizations.”

Crescent’s 2012 Supplier Recognition Program Award Winners are: Overall winner: GE Lighting; Boxes/Fittings/Enclosures: Arlington Industries; Wire/Cable: Cerro Wire; Wiring Devices: Hubbell Wiring Devices; Accessories: Ideal Industries; Lighting Fixtures: Juno Lighting Group/Schneider; PVC: Prime Conduit; Distribution/Control: Schneider Electric; Lamps/Ballast/Lighting Controls: Universal Lighting Technologies; and Steel Conduit: Wheatland Tube.
