Square D by Schneider Electric Receives Highest Distinction in David Weekley Homes’ Industry-Acclaimed Partners of Choice Awards
• Square D honored for its quality and level of service by the home builder for the seventh time
BOSTON, July 25, 2019 – Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announced that its Square D™ quality and customer service capabilities have earned the highest rating among home building industry suppliers. This A,A rating merits Square D the prestigious Partner of Choice Award from David Weekley Homes.
Square D was selected by David Weekley Homes, the largest privately-held home builder in America, as one of only 16 suppliers to achieve the “A,A” ranking in Quality and Service – the highest honor in David Weekley Homes’ industry-leading evaluation platform. This is the seventh year that Square D has received a Partners of Choice Award in the award program’s 15-year history.
“Homeowners face rising costs and an increasing need to manage and measure power usage,” said Brad Wills, director of strategic customers & programs, Home & Distribution for Schneider Electric. “This honor as a David Weekley Homes Partner of Choice speaks to our commitment to providing industry-leading solutions for residential electrical distribution and safety.”
The acclaimed Partners of Choice Awards are based on the quarterly David Weekley Homes’ National Trading Partner Survey, comprised of 12 questions that allow roughly 1,000 David Weekley Homes team members from all points of contact to rate areas of supplier performance on a 1-to-10 scale. Suppliers are rated on all aspects of their business, including quality of products, reliability, service and pricing. Survey results that fall below an eight on the scoring system prompt thorough follow-up and action plans, as well as opportunities for coaching and mentoring, while providers who receive the highest scores throughout the year are presented with the prestigious Partners of Choice Award.
“Today’s home buyer is more informed and has higher expectations than ever before. We will continue to rely on our strongest National Trading Partners to help us deliver a buying experience that is unsurpassed in the home building industry,” said John Schiegg, director of supply chain services for David Weekley Homes. “Square D by Schneider Electric has again surpassed the high expectations we set for our partners by continually demonstrating a dedication to delivering world-class quality and service to David Weekley Homes.”
