Donaldson Co., a worldwide manufacturer of filtration systems and parts, recently announced the receipt of a 2006 Gold Award from Vulcan Materials Co. The award was accepted at Vulcan’s 8th Annual Alliance Partner Awards banquet held in March 2007.
Each year, Vulcan plant managers complete surveys ranking suppliers in the following areas: product, service, support, ease of transactions, value and overall performance. To be considered for an award, suppliers must have a minimum of 25 ratings. This is Donaldson’s second year receiving an Alliance Partner award.
“We applaud Vulcan and the Vulcan Procurement Department for hosting these annual awards to further support their department mission of selecting suppliers who deliver superior products and services to their operations, resulting in long-term improvements to productivity and cost of operation,” says Val Peterson, director of strategic accounts for Minneapolis-based Donaldson Engine Aftermarket. “Our group feels privileged to receive this award — it attests to our commitment to providing superior customer support and service.”
