Bosch Home Appliances and Thermador Earn Prestigious "Partners of Choice Award" From David Weekley Homes

Become First Appliance Brands to Receive Coveted "A,A" Rating

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 3, 2015) - Bosch home appliances and Thermador have received the nationally acclaimed "Partners of Choice Award" from David Weekley Homes, the largest privately held homebuilder in the nation. The brands were selected from a pool of 200 companies, and are among only 15 companies to receive the highest "A,A" ranking, which recognizes excellence in both quality and service in support of David Weekley Homes' team members. Bosch home appliances and Thermador are the first and only appliance brands to receive this recognition in David Weekley Homes' 12 year running supplier evaluation platform.

"We are very proud to receive the Partners of Choice award and its 'A,A' ranking from David Weekley Homes," said Bob Eustice, director, builder sales for Bosch home appliances and Thermador. "Being the first appliance brands to receive the Partners of Choice Award from David Weekley Homes demonstrates the commitment, dedication and value Bosch and Thermador bring to builder projects."

David Weekley Homes, the nation's largest privately-held home builder, established the "Partners of Choice Award" in 2003 to recognize outstanding suppliers. The award is based on David Weekley Homes' rigorous supplier evaluation platform, with the engine being its National Trading Partner survey. The survey evaluates each supplier's performance on quality and service based on assessments from approximately 800 team members across the David Weekley organization. Measuring access, communication, timelines, reliability, follow-through, confidence levels and other areas that affect the business relationship, the survey provides trading partners with valuable feedback and the opportunity to review and improve channel alignment and performance.

"The significance of the accomplishments by both Bosch and Thermador cannot be overstated," said Bill Justus, VP supply chain services and excutive sponsor of the supplier feedback platform for David Weekley Homes. "Our friends at Bosch and Thermador not only represent the first appliance companies to become an "A,A" winner in our 12 year history, but they did it the first year they entered our process. As evidenced by approximately 800 rating opportunities, our team members have stated that they are world-class in providing quality products and services to our company."
