Unimin Receives Excellent Supplier Award from PPG
PPG Industries recently announced nine Excellent Supplier Award recipients for superior performance in 2014. Among the recipients was Unimin Corp., which has long provided non-metallic industrial minerals for PPG’s glass manufacturing operations, helping control costs through both pricing and inventory-reduction efforts.
On an annual basis, PPG purchases more than $7.5 billion in goods and services globally from thousands of suppliers. The company’s criteria for Excellent Supplier Awards include quality, commercial value, delivery, documentation, innovation, responsiveness, sustainability and participation in PPG's Supplier Added Value Effort ($AVE) program.
“We are pleased to recognize these suppliers, whose products, services, innovation and overall value in 2014 were outstanding,” said Steve Lampe, PPG vice president of corporate purchasing and logistics. “We consider them critical business partners who provide exceptional and significant competitive advantage to PPG.”
