PPG Industries recently presented seven Excellent Supplier Awards for superior performance in 2010. On an annual basis, PPG purchases nearly $7 billion in materials and services from thousands of suppliers. The company’s criteria for Excellent Supplier Awards include product quality, delivery, documentation, innovation, responsiveness, continuous improvement and participation in PPG’s Supplier Added Value Effort ($AVE) program.
Among the companies earning the 2010 Excellent Supplier Award are Bayer MaterialScience, a global supplier of polyurethanes, resins and other raw materials to PPG’s aerospace, automotive OEM coatings, automotive refinish and industrial coatings businesses; and Eastman Chemical Co., which provides solvents, adhesion promoters and other chemicals to PPG’s aerospace, automotive OEM coatings, automotive refinish, chlor-alkali and derivatives, industrial coatings, and protective and marine coatings businesses in North America.
“We are pleased to recognize these suppliers, whose products, services, reliability, innovation and overall value in 2010 were outstanding,” said Steve Lampe, vice president of corporate purchasing and distribution. “We consider them invaluable business partners who provide exceptional and significant competitive advantage to PPG.”
