Sherwin-Williams recently announced three winning business partners during the ninth annual Equipment and Supplies Vendor Awards at the Hilton Orlando in Orlando, Fla.

Mirka Abrasives earned Vendor of the Year as well as the new Excellence in Sales Award, chosen via live voting by Sherwin-Williams Industrial Wood Coatings and General Industrial Coatings sales representatives and facility managers. The company’s support of the Sherwin-Williams sales teams throughout 2017 resulted in an increase in new customer accounts and substantial sales gains. Mirka USA was also a Sherwin-Williams Equipment and Supplies Vendor Awards winner in 2016, earning the Field Sales Support Award.

The Sales Excellence Award went to Sames Kremlin, which offers complete finishing solutions – from pumps to complete application systems – that help to improve manufacturing efficiency and deliver bottom-line results. Sames Kremlin garnered the largest gross dollar sales increase of any Equipment and Supplies partner in the past year.

Roo Glue won the New Market Growth Excellence Award. Over the past year, no other supplier has seen as large an increase in the number of Sherwin-Williams blending facilities through which its products are sold.

The equipment and supplies program serves all the finishing needs of original equipment manufacturers, tier suppliers and finishing job shops by offering a selection of more than 10,000 brand-name supplies and equipment items to address the entire coating process, from sanding and pretreatment to finished product, and on-site support to improve paint finishing operations.
