Vernon Company Names Prime Line Supplier of Year
The award, given annually to the industry supplier who provides the best overall service to The Vernon Company and its customers, is based on important quality considerations, including presale quotations, proper handling of samples, prompt service on inquiries, on-time order shipments, customer service responsiveness and marketing support programs.
“Prime Line was selected as our supplier of the year for 2012 for many reasons,” said Vicki J. Wade, Vernon’s director of marketing. “They offer the Vernon team excellent service from beginning to end of the supply chain. Of the factors we use to qualify suppliers for this annual award, Prime Line exceeds our ratings for trust, reliability, quality, resolution and creativity.”
“Those efforts were reflected in sales—Prime Line’s sales grew 69 percent with Vernon in 2012," Wade added.
The award was presented at The Vernon Company's annual awards and recognition banquet, held during the company's national sales meeting in Houston. Marcus Sweeney, national accounts manager for Prime Line, accepted the award.
“The Vernon Company is amazing to work with. I feel fortunate to have a great working relationship with everyone at Vernon while achieving such great sales results," noted Sweeney. “Prime and Vernon have a longstanding relationship and it’s a great honor to be presented with an award of this stature and the incredible growth in sales that accompanies it. This means a lot to everyone at Prime, coming from a great distributor and fabulous friends.”
