Milwaukee Electric Tool Receives Grainger's Partners in Performance Award

MILWAUKEE - At its annual supplier meeting in Schaumburg, Ill., Grainger awarded Milwaukee Electric Tool Corp. its 2008 Partners in Performance Award in the Large Supplier Category.

Less than 2 percent of all suppliers earn this award that recognizes recipients for exceptional performance throughout the year. Award winning suppliers are measured on a number of criteria including responsiveness, on-time shipping, cost control, management commitment, and product quality.

“We are relentlessly committed to lead by delivering new products with disruptive innovation, best-in-class performance, and solutions to enhance end-user productivity,” said Steve Richman, president of Milwaukee Electric Tool. “For over 85 years, our distribution partners and tradesmen alike have put their trust in the Milwaukee brand. We are proud to be recognized by Grainger for our efforts and we look forward to building on that foundation of success.”

Grainger made special note of the consistent effort put forth by the team members in Olive Branch, Miss., who “make it happen week in and week out.”

This is the second time that Milwaukee Electric Tool has won the award.
