M. K. Morse Recognized as Outstanding Supplier by Grainger

Award recognizes excellence in responsiveness, information integrity, on time shipping, management commitment and fulfillment.

The M. K. Morse Company was presented with Grainger’s prestigious Partners in Performance Award for 2009 at Grainger’s annual supplier conference held in Schaumburg, IL in February. Grainger, North America’s leading distributor of facilities maintenance supplies, presents the award annually to a select group of suppliers for outstanding performance throughout the year.

Grainger's Partners in Performance Award recognizes suppliers who achieve excellence in several categories, including responsiveness, information integrity, on time shipping, management commitment and order fulfillment. Grainger suppliers receive ratings throughout the year for their performance in each of these categories. Approximately 1 percent of Grainger's 3,000 suppliers receive this award each year.

“We are quite honored to be among the very select group of companies receiving this distinction,” shared L. A. (Chip) Tomlinson, Vice President of National Accounts at Morse. “The M. K. Morse Company is committed to providing only the highest levels of service and support to our customers. Achieving this award for 2009 exemplifies the conviction of everyone at Morse, as well as our fellow sales associates at LineDrive, to stand beside our customers before as well as long after the sale. We believe that a true partnership between companies throughout the entire supply chain process is the best foundation to genuine success for all.” This is the fourth award Morse has received from Grainger in the past six years.
