THERMA-TRU Named Lowe's Supplier of the Year
Therma-Tru Doors of Maumee, Ohio, was named Supplier of the Year by Lowe's Companies Inc. during the home improvement retailer's recent annual Vendor Forum. The award honors companies that meet or exceed Lowe's standards in innovation, product performance, environmental policies and responsive customer service, among other criteria.
Chosen from finalists in 20 product categories, Therma-Tru was the only supplier to achieve the top honor as Supplier of the Year. This is the company's second consecutive year receive this award.
"We are truly honored to earn such a distinction from Lowe's and be recognized among so many other world-class companies," said Carl Hedlund, president and chief executive officer of Therma-Tru. "It is part of our culture to listen to the voice of the customer and we're proud that Lowe's appreciates the efforts of our team. They have all worked extremely hard to earn Lowe's trust and respect."
In late 2004, Therma-Tru added Benchmark by Therma-Tru fiberglass door systems as a stock product in Lowe's stores, along with a corresponding Therma-Tru & Benchmark by Therma-Tru special order kiosk. Informative consumer-oriented product brochures were created for both product lines, along with step-by-step point-of-purchase guides to further assist Lowe's customers in selecting a door. New and unique display door signage was developed to provide consumers with further insight into the features and benefits of Therma-Tru fiberglass door systems. The company also worked hand-in-hand with the Lowe's training department to educate the sales staff on the benefits of fiberglass and attributes of the product lines.
