Uponor receives Partners of Choice Award for fourth year

David Weekley Homes, the largest privately held builder in the U.S., awards Uponor an A ranking in both quality and service.


Apple Valley, MN, Aug. 28, 2017 — Uponor North America (Uponor) is now a four-time winner of the acclaimed Partners of Choice Awards program, receiving an A ranking in both quality and service from Houston-based David Weekley Homes.

Of the 200 companies assessed in the homebuilder’s supplier evaluation program, only 17 received an A ranking in both quality and service. Additionally, Uponor is only one of eight companies to win the award four years or more. In past years, Uponor received an A ranking in both quality and service in 2014, an A ranking in quality in 2015, and an A ranking in service in 2016.

“Our purpose is building dreams and enhancing lives,” says Bill Justus, vice president of Supply Chain Services for David Weekley Homes. “To do that well, you have to surround yourself with high performers who can deliver superior quality and service consistently. Uponor has demonstrated a level of outstanding performance we can count on, which is critical when we’re striving to deliver a high-quality product to our customers.”

The Partners of Choice assessment program was originally created by Justus in 2004 to improve the relationship and interaction between the builder and its suppliers. In its 14th year, the program is continuing to set new industry standards and drive continuous improvement, seeing an average increase of 13 percent each year in supplier engagement and progress.

“At Uponor, we are proud and honored to partner with professionals like David Weekley Homes who continually look for opportunities to improve in every area of the value chain,” says Carl Hines, national builder sales manager at Uponor. “The feedback we receive from the Partners of Choice assessment program helps us perfect our business and further enhance the customer experience so people can always feel confident in our products, service and system solutions.”
