Based on its commitment to success and ability to meet a set of challenging objectives, the electronics and industrial groups of Henkel have been awarded Prime Source Awards from Atlanta-based EIS, a leading electrical/electronics industry distributor. The awards were presented to Henkel’s Jim Sharp, electronics group southeastern territory manager, and Ken Helfers, Industrial Group distribution account executive, by EIS President and CEO Bob Thomas at a special ceremony on January 19th in Orlando, FL.

Henkel and EIS have been supplier-distributor partners since 1989, with EIS representing Henkel’s advanced assembly and semiconductor materials, industrial adhesives, sealants, and assembly equipment throughout North America. In an effort to recognize outstanding commitment and support of its suppliers, EIS launched the Prime Source Award program in 2007. Eligibility for the program is predicated on exceeding annual sales of $1,000,000.00 of the supplier’s products. Criteria for winning one of the prestigious awards includes achieving sales revenue growth of at least 7%, a total profitability index improvement of at least 10 points over the previous year and positive results from a sales and customer development field survey of EIS sales and management personnel. Henkel successfully met or exceeded all of the award conditions, thus resulting in the company’s double win.

Commenting on Henkel’s achievement, Thomas said, “The EIS Prime Source Award was designed as more than a sales achievement, as we fully recognize that excellent results are not solely dependent on good products. The sales support, applications expertise and product development know-how of the Henkel team are what make our partnership with them so successful. We heartily congratulate them on winning two of the first Prime Source Awards and exemplifying supplier excellence.”
