Tool manufacturer the M.K. Morse Co. has been named Supplier of the Year by Rocket Supply Co.

The award was presented last month to John Howard, a Morse sales man, by Steve Ruwe, Rocket’s customer service manager.

“It is the most prestigious honor we can bestow upon a supplier,” Ruwe said. “To win a supplier really has to show tremendous value to our organization. John has made himself an extension of the Rocket Supply sales team. John assisted Rocket with product conversions, testing opportunities, and jointly with the Rocket sales force increased revenues on saw blades dramatically. John’s persistence and tenacity are what earned him this award.”
