LP achieved the coveted “A” rating in quality. This is one of the highest awards presented by the homebuilder.

LP was one of 25 of the 200 companies participating in David Weekley Homes’ industry-leading supplier evaluation platform to receive the esteemed “Partners of Choice Award.”

“This is a great honor coming from the nation’s largest privately held home builder,” LP Specialty Sales and Marketing Vice President Craig Sichling said. “This shows that the hard work that LP employees and channel partners put into what they do every day is appreciated.”

At the heart of David Weekley Home’s process is the National Trading Partner Survey, which was implemented in 2004, and serves as the engine behind the homebuilder’s renowned supplier evaluation platform.

“To be a Partners of Choice Award winner for five consecutive years is a remarkable accomplishment, especially when you consider all the changes in our industry over the past 5 years,” said Bill Justus, vice president of supply chain services for David Weekley Homes and chief architect behind the homebuilder’s supplier evaluation platform. “Through it all our friends at LP have found a way to consistently provide quality products to our organization.”

LP’s field sales and marketing team works closely with David Weekley Homes, supplying more than half of the homebuilder’s markets with a variety of engineered wood products including LP® TechShield® Radiant Barrier sheathing, LP® TopNotch® Sub-flooring, LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding, and LP® SolidStart® Laminated Strand Lumber (LSL).

David Weekley’s evaluation process is an invaluable aid to LP’s field team, LP National Accounts Manager Matt Olson said.

“The information gives our sales and marketing teams valuable insights in how – and where we can improve the quality and service that keeps LP a world class organization,” Olson said.
