Goodyear Engineered Products Earns Top Supplier Award
Goodyear Engineered Products has gained a significant recognition from leading US construction aggregate supplier Vulcan, beating strong competition to win Vulcan’s 2006 Gold Supplier Award. The company was evaluated upon the products services and technical support, amongst other criteria, and was awarded one of the top scores in all these categories.
“Our associates and vast distributor network earned this recognition because of their commitment to supplying world-class products and service to Vulcan locations across the country,” said Mike Braucher, Goodyear’s marketing manager for conveyor belts. “We are proud to receive the award from this industry leader.”
Braucher admitted Goodyear has had its eye on the gold award since the company began supplying heavy-duty conveyor belts to Vulcan in 1997. “We’ve achieved two bronze followed by five consecutive silver awards,” he said, “but there’s nothing like winning gold.”
He said Goodyear Authorized Distributors (GADs), through marketing and selling branded products and providing expert services and technical support to Vulcan plant managers, are essential to the company’s relationship with Vulcan. “Our success is predicated on our customers’ success,” Braucher explained, “so we work very hard to help Vulcan maintain efficient
conveyor systems and maximize production of crushed stone, sand and gravel. It’s the customer first, always.”
