PITT OHIO, a leader in regional and national logistics services and sustainability in the transportation industry, has received a 2017 PPG Excellent Supplier Award. PPG recognizes a handful of outstanding suppliers annually with their highest level award. PITT OHIO is the only transportation/logistics provider receiving the Excellence award this year.
Radhika Batra, PPG Vice President Global Supply Management, and members of PPG logistics team visited PITT OHIO’s corporate office today to present Chuck Hammel, PITT OHIO President, with the award. “At PPG, we believe a good relationship with our suppliers, like PITT OHIO, is extremely important because suppliers play a major role in the success of our business,” Batra said. “This relationship requires more from our suppliers than someone who simply supplies goods and/or services. It requires a strategic partnership where both parties work mutually to ensure success for each other. This award is our recognition that we value our relationship and look forward to continued success. PITT OHIO’s dedication to excellent service, ability to anticipate customers’ needs, dedication to sustainability, and focus on economic value makes them a wonderful selection for the 2017 PPG Excellent Supplier of the Year Award.”
“PITT OHIO considers PPG to be one of our top long-term strategic business partners,” Hammel said. “PITT OHIO has a history of developing customized solutions for our customers and we are honored to be recognized for this effort. We are pleased PPG was able to present this award to all of our employees at our corporate office today as we truly believe it is a team effort. Everyone involved deserves the recognition from this prestigious PPG award. We look forward to continuing to develop our relationship by creating more value for PPG and their customers.”
PPG rates suppliers on 8 criteria, including: quality, commercial value, delivery, documentation, added value, innovation, responsiveness and sustainability. The ratings are supported by evaluations from PPG businesses and employees who use their products and services to determine the limited list of recipients each year.
