For the fourth consecutive year, Trane was recognized by homebuilder David Weekley Homes, by receiving its Partners of Choice Award.

The award is based on David Weekley Homes’ National Trading Partner Survey.

Out of a field of 150 companies, Trane is one of five that have received the homebuilder’s highest scores, an “A” in quality and service, for four consecutive years. 

Suppliers are rated by roughly 1,000 David Weekley Homes’ affiliates annually, including builders, project managers, warranty service, design center, administrative and the executive team.

Ratings are tallied for both quality and customer service, and averaged for all David Weekley Homes’ national trading partners, resulting in a letter grade from A to F in 20 percent increments for each category.

 Trane achieved an “A, A” rating, scoring among the Top 20 percent in both quality and service. The homebuilder recognized 16 suppliers, 10 percent of its total supplier base, who ranked an “A” in either quality, service, or both at an awards ceremony Aug. 14 in Houston.

“Our survey program challenges the distribution channel to be as efficient and effective as possible,” said Bill Justus, vice president of supply chain services for David Weekley Homes.  “Trane has consistently ranked at the top when measured against dozens of other companies.  Through their actions, Trane has demonstrated they are world-class in providing goods and services to our team members.”
