DALLAS, August 1, 2016 – HomeTeam Pest Defense announced today that the company received David Weekley Homes’ “Partners of Choice” award for the sixth consecutive year. HomeTeam is only one of three suppliers to achieve David Weekley’s “A” award for quality.
For more than 13 years, David Weekley Homes has evaluated their business partners’ performance with the National Trading Partner Survey. Each quarter, 1,000 team members evaluate 200 suppliers, across all industries, on product quality and service commitment to their organization. Companies are rated and comparatively ranked alongside other national trading partners. Through a series of one-on-one discussions, meetings, coaching calls and feedback sessions, David Weekley Homes teams with its suppliers, and its own organization, to achieve excellence together.
Debbie Silver, HomeTeam’s vice president of builder sales, said, “Winning this award is a great honor as we celebrate our company’s 20th anniversary this year. David Weekley Homes is celebrating an anniversary milestone of 40 years, as well. Though HomeTeam has only been around half that time, our companies share similar philosophies, cultures and core values.”
According to Bill Justus, noted author and vice president of supply chain services for David Weekley Homes, “Our trading partner program offers a proven method for measuring both channel alignment and industry performance. By collaborating with our partners, we establish opportunities for improvement for our team, our customers and our community.”
“When each quarter’s results become available, I personally review the comments and share with our team,” said Silver. The National Trading Partner Survey gives us the opportunity to resolve any issues, strengthening our relationship with this prominent home builder.”
