Partners in Performance awards celebrate suppliers who exceed company performance expectations.
Itasca, IL (July, 13, 2023) – LineDrive was recognized with Grainger’s 2022 Partners in Performance Award. Grainger, the leading broad line distributor of maintenance, repair and operating supplies, presents the award to a select group of suppliers for outstanding performance throughout the year.
Grainger's Partners in Performance Award honors the Supplier Rep Agency who demonstrates true collaborative effort, an understanding of Grainger’s requirements, and who always strives to advocate for Grainger with their suppliers.
“To be recognized by the leading broad line distributor in the maintenance, repair and operating (MRO) products industry as a best-in-class partner is humbling. This award speaks to a culture of continuous improvement, with a focus towards prioritizing the voice of the customer,” said Malcolm Smith, Senior Director of Business Development.
“This achievement doesn’t happen without everyone on the team working hard to exceed expectations. This is a great accomplishment and a testament to each LineDrive team member’s devotion to deliver on our commitment to grow our customers’ business. To achieve this recognition for two consecutive years is even more special and something we should take a lot of personal pride in accomplishing,” said Mitch Lorish, Vice President of Strategic Accounts.
Grainger suppliers receive ratings throughout the year on their performance in each category. Out of Grainger's more than 3,500 High-Touch Solutions suppliers, fewer than 1 percent are chosen to receive PIP awards.
“Grainger is proud to recognize LineDrive among a select group of suppliers who add value for the customers and communities we are privileged to serve,” said Matt Fortin, Group Vice President, Merchandising and Supplier Management. “Partnership is key to our success, and we want to thank LineDrive for their exceptional support of our customers.”
