APPLE VALLEY, MINN., JUNE 27, 2022 — Uponor North America (Uponor) was once again honored with the David Weekley Homes National Preferred Partner Award, which recognizes field and manufacturer partners who have consistently operated at exceptional levels as determined by the homebuilder’s supplier evaluation platform. This marks the 10th consecutive year Uponor has received the prominent recognition from the national homebuilder since 2014.
Uponor provides PEX plumbing and fire safety systems for David Weekley Homes and was one of only 12 manufacturer partners nationwide to receive the prestigious honor.
“Uponor consistently goes above and beyond to help us exceed our homebuyers’ expectations,” says John Schiegg, vice president, Supply Chain Services, David Weekley Homes. “By working together, we’re creating the best homebuilding experience possible for our customers, and we are grateful to Uponor for their outstanding product quality and service.”
The David Weekley Homes National Preferred Partners Survey Program began in 2004 as a means to evaluate field and manufacturer partners on customer service and product quality. Each year, only a select few are honored with the National Preferred Partner award with even fewer receiving the award for multiple consecutive years. For this year’s recognition, a total of 123 companies were evaluated with only 13 field partners and 12 manufacturer partners achieving the esteemed designation of National Preferred Partner.
